Disneyland 2012....lots of fun and some rain...

Once again we enjoyed another wonderful spring break at Disneyland and California Adventure.  The weather started off great and ended in a down pour. But we found out when it rains in Disneyland you can have more fun than on a sunny day. All of the cast members and characters go out of their way to make you forget the rain. And there was no line to see Mickey and his friend in ToonTown this year because of the sprinkels.

Ann,
I tried 3 times to leave a comment and it keeps deleting them! Sigh..... Just wanted to stop by since I finally got on Shutterfly. We are heading to NY finally for a long overdue visit. I cannot wait to see Joe. Marina is still in Venezuela since January and won't be back until June. Its been extremely hard having this temporary empty nest! :( Well hope all is well. Talk to you soon! :)
4/30/2013 1:40:29 AM - 002020640084
Ann,
Hi! How are you? I miss you :( I enjoyed all your updates. Have a Happy Mother's Day! :)
12/18/2012 6:13:31 PM - 001087896398
Love IT!~! Looks like you all had an awesome time. I hope you and your family have a happy holiday and enjoy the magic in every moment! Merry Christmas.
10/29/2012 1:51:45 AM - 002088910291
Ann, I was finally able to get over to your site! I decided to get the pics before Disney looked at first! It seems like you have so many trips there, could that be because you live so close! That is really cool! It looks like you have some fantastic pics to see! Have a fabulous Halloween this week! Deb xoxox
9/11/2012 1:23:01 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
Hi! I just stopped by to look around again. Can you believe I made it here 2 times this week? I love all your Disney albums and project life albums. When is your next Disney trip? How is school going for the kids? Are they excited for Halloween?
9/6/2012 12:28:37 AM - 002020640084
Ann,
Hi! How are you doing? How did the kids like the 1st week of school? I bet it was a blast going school shopping! I miss those days when they are young and super excited for the new school year. I loved getting all the lunch boxes, folders, crayons, supplies, and backpacks. The clothes, sneaker, undies, sock shopping was so fun too.

I loved all your new additions! The Disney albums are a blast. Hope someday we can go to CA again and this time get to meet up with everyone. I want to go in 18-24 months if all goes well with Rob's job. It would be so much fun! :)

Talk to you soon girlie! :)

Hi Ann! I live in Dutchess County, about 15 minutes from Poughkeepsie. I don't think Rochester is far from me at all!

Girlfriend you can take my grandkids photos anytime! Love to look around and hugs to you and your family. I heard from Rachel today she is doing great and I just love her!

Hope you have a great week! I really enjoyed all your holiday albums! :)

Ann,
Hi! How are you doing? Glad to see you are doing the 365 project this year.

What are you, hubby, and kiddos up to this weekend?

Marina is still in Venezuela and I am missing her like crazy. She is having so much fun. I talk to her, email, blackberry messanger her, and facebook message her at least 15 times a day. Thank god for technology! Today they got up early and went to Colonia Tovar its about 1 hour drive I believe and its a German town. I googled it and its so cool! I did an updated journal entry on my site and put all the info and put some internet pics that I copied and pasted. I can't wait to see all the pics. Marina took my camera. I only sent her with my 50mm lens because I didn't have time to teach her how to work it and to be honest I still don't know how to properly change my lenses and I sit messing with it for like 15 minutes until it goes on. Its a pain and I really should know how to change a lens by now don't you think? LOL! :)

I have tons of updates on my site. Here is the link to my sharesite since everyone has a hard time finding it:
http://lucky4me.shutterfly.com/





Hope that helps! LOL! :)


1/7/2012 5:38:34 AM - 001023411097

1/6/2012 8:14:00 PM - 001024320926

Happy New Year and all the good stuff!!
1/2/2012 5:39:42 PM - 001017544077

Hi Ann! I had to stop and and see the new fall photos! I love the Halloween costumes - fun, fun, fun! It looks like you guys are having an amazing autumn. The kiddos are growing so fast and are all so darn beautiful (much like Momma!)
10/27/2011 4:10:29 AM - 004024565663
great looking site..such a cute family..
10/2/2011 6:24:27 PM - 002020640084
P.S. I loved seeing you on FLICKR!!! You will love it! :)
10/2/2011 6:20:53 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
Sorry I haven't been by in so long its been hectic trying to get used to a strange place 500 miles away from my hometown. We have been so busy and enjoying exploring this new area. If this relocation happened 10 years ago it would be a dream come true but it came at the worse time in my kids lives. It breaks my heart to be 500 miles away from my only boy! It breaks my heart to bring Marina to a strange place away from everyone and everything she loved. Its hard for her to be apart from her only sibling. I think if Joe was here that it would have made the transition a lot easier. I really appreciate you thinking of me. Miss having time to keep up with everyone on the sites, facebook, FLICKR, phone, texting, emails, etc.

Anyways, I enjoyed all the new albums. The back to school headers are GORGEOUS!!! Hope you had a great weekend! It was our 18th wedding anniversary and the day started out TERRIBLE with us having a MAJOR TIRE BLOW OUT on the highway! After being stranded in the afternoon, on a dangerous part of the highway sitting there waiting for AAA to come we then went to the EUROPEAN MARKET in Chesterton, IN and we loved it. Then we went to a nice Italian restaurant for lunch. In the end, it all turned out great and we are blessed and grateful that we didn't get hurt.
9/5/2011 6:07:01 PM - 000031826072
Hey Ann - I've been busy myself this summer and terrible about keeping up, so I wanted to stop in an say hi and check out the latest. The back to schiool headers of the kids are fantastic. They ARE growing up so very fast. I loved the birthday photos, too! It's hard to beat monkeys and fiestas! Great themes. Hope you and the fmaily are having a wonderful holiday weekend. Love & Hugs, J
9/4/2011 8:27:32 PM - fb:552913045
FABULOUS back to school header pics Ann! Thanks for visiting my website. I came by to see your Disneyland Birthday layout that you mentioned but can't find it. Is that because you're still working on the photo book or am I just missing it?
9/3/2011 2:30:36 AM - 000074469281
Ann, thanks for dropping by my site. It was nce to 'see' you!! I'm barely on it anymore. I love your headers with your CUTE growing kids as they head back to school! GREAT pics!!
8/30/2011 3:27:54 AM - fb:1788658167
Ann I always love visiting your site. The kids are so precious. Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!

6/22/2011 11:23:25 PM - 000074469281
Great headers! Your kids are growing so fast. Congrats to Alyssa from graduating from grade school and Trinity from Pre-K!! Wow, how can Alyssa be a 6th grader already! Trinty will love school and her teachers will adore her. Will Tyler be a 3rd grader? Oh, thx for stopping by my site...I've been so terrible at visiting others. Love your pics!
6/22/2011 11:06:09 PM - 002088910291
Ann, I just looked at your book on the New custom path, and it was great! I loved how you made it look exactly like it was done in digi scrapping! It was a fantastic and colorful book! I saved it, so I could look back at it and see the different things possible with the NCP! Thanks for sharing it! Deb xoxox
6/17/2011 3:13:18 AM - 002020640084
Ann,
I love all the new Disney headers! You have so many fun new albums! I love them! I will try to come back this week to check your site out more! Hope you have a great weekend! :)

Oh and the faces painting on Trinity - priceless!!!!! Love all the new additions! xxxo

2/26/2011 10:00:07 PM - 000074469281
Hey there Ann!! I love your book!!! Is it in the Gallery? I must go look!!
I am sure your kids had a blast at the Aquarium. Monterey is beautiful. I can't wait to look around.
I like what Tiffany K said. Yo go girl!!
2/24/2011 3:58:22 AM - 002000792930
I love your Disney book!!! We are going this year, did you make the layout yourself? I would love to have them if you would like to share.
2/9/2011 5:23:52 PM - 003082471598
Hi, I saw your site on Shutterfly's Share Central and I thought I would take a look to see what other people had for their sites. I have to definitely say that this is the first site I saw that does not have "a lot" going on. I like how you have balanced all of the content out to where all of it is not on one page or is overwhelming. I also like the "gadgets" you have on the website, you incorporated them very nicely.
2/3/2011 10:01:05 PM - 001024320926
Loving all the new pictures, that guitar is beautiful. Your book is beautiful too. I promise to get in the gallery and look soon, weather and work have me skimming the surface of things I want to explore better.
I hope that the weather is being good to ya'll!!
2/3/2011 7:20:51 PM - 001026596763
Your scrapbooks are beautiful.I really like the Disney one.I would love to do a digital scrapbook for my husband.I'm just starting to learn how to start a scrapbook. If you don't mind me asking what website do you use for digital scrap booking? thank you
1/29/2011 5:26:35 PM - 002007382181
you made a guitar for your daughter! how cool is that!
1/23/2011 8:24:32 PM - 000031826072
Poor Randy...almost too busy to be sexy??? LOL
No worries - tell him that all that takiing care of his family is sexy in itself!
1/20/2011 7:12:21 PM - 000031826072
That Randy is one talented man! Kudos to you for snagging him! LOL
1/20/2011 2:12:07 AM - 001023411097
Randy, what a beautiful gift and from your hands to hers. I love the guitar and I know she did too!!! WOW you are talented.
1/19/2011 11:28:48 PM - 000074469281
How COOL is the guitar album. Oh my gosh, so glad you got the step-by-steps in photos. You'll all really treasure the work that went into Alyssa's guitar. I love the photo of her. One can tell she is beyond thrilled. What did she say when you told her dad made it??
1/18/2011 10:37:27 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
I love the guitar album! Randy is 1 extremely talented guy! :)
1/18/2011 8:04:41 PM - 001038348079
OMG!!! WHAT GREAT HEADERS! LOVE THE GUITAR! HOW SUPER CREATIVE AND WHAT A GREAT GREAT GIFT! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT IN MANY MANY MORE PICTURES! HOW SUPER! ITS A GOOD THING YOU GUYS LIVE SO FAR AWAY. RANDY AND WILL WOULD BE IN THE GARAGE TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN TELL HE NEVER SITS STILL!
1/18/2011 4:16:14 AM - 002088910291
Ann, I love the pics on your header of Alyssa getting her new guitar, how very cool is that! I would look at some more of your site now but am very tired from being at the hospital with dad today! I saw your comment in the sfly share site, and hopped on over to check out the photos! Deb xoxox
1/10/2011 7:59:55 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
Thanks so much for stopping by my new site and for commenting on my newest feature photobook! You are a doll! I hope the new year is bringing you lots of love, happiness, & joy! :)

I will talk to you soon. Rob is home for a visit on 1 of his vacation weeks! We are hoping to go to Dave and Busters or the movie and show since Joe has off of work! We are so excited! I'll tell you all about the visit real soon! :)

Check out my newest book!  I think that some of you might recognize yourselves in the book ;)
12/29/2010 5:34:39 AM - 002020640084
Ann,
Thanks so much for the beautiful New Years Card! It was so festive and fun! Perfect in everyway! Hope you and your family have a very Happy New Year!

Sorry to hear you were missing your parents that passed away. The holidays are always bittersweet after a loved one passes. I can sympathize somewhat since Rob lost both his parents to cancer his mom when Rob was only like 15 or 16 and his dad when he was 29. It was tough to be so young and lose your both of your parents. Rob's dad passed away Dec.20 the day after his bday and the wakes and funeral were up until Dec. 23. It was really tough to lose his dad on his bday week and Christmas week so its a difficult week for sure. Its sad that Joe was only 5 and Marina was only 2 when Rob's dad died. Then they never met Rob's mom because she died when Rob was a teenager before they were born. Did your kids get to meet your parents? Do you have siblings? if so, do they live close by? After Rob's dad died the siblings all had disagreements and weren't as close. Its really sad. Rob is an identical twin and his twin doesn't speak to any family or childhood friends. (NO ONE HE GREW UP WITH). He has a controlling wife and kept him away from everyone he ever cared about. They live down the street and my nephew and niece go to the same school so my kids would see my brother in law and say hi and he would give them evil looks and walk away! Can you imagine? My husband Rob and his twin brother Rick used to be inseperable until he met his controlling wife.

Are Randy's parents alive? Does he have siblings? If so, do they live close by?

I hope that all the sweet memories you have of your parents fill your heart with joy during the holidays and into the New Year. I love digging out old photobooks and looking at ones with my father in law in it to show my kids. I hope to someday after we move(since my albums are packed away) to be able to scan all the photos of my father in law and to make a photobook! It would be so nice for the kids and Rob would really cherish it! Did you ever scan old photos of your parents and your childhood and make a photobook yet? It would be an awesome project to do during the winter!

Have a good week my dear! Hope your feeling better! XOXO
12/29/2010 3:12:23 AM - 000031826072
Great Christmas pictures, Ann! Looks like you, Randy and the trio had another magical Christmas! Your tree is beautiful - love those gorgeous colors.
Thanks for commenting on my Thanksgiving book. I'm sure you noticed I "made one like this" on YOUR fabulous Thanksgiving book and made a few edits and presto.......one of my very own. Thanks for the inspiration, my friend! I'm so glad I got to meet you this year. Happy New Year to you and the fam. xxxo
12/27/2010 3:16:47 AM - 001023411097
Hey lady, love your Christmas photos and your new blog!!! Happy New Year!

Ann,
MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope it was truly magical! I can't wait to see all the photos! :)

Our mother/daughter trip was a dream come true vacation. Everything was perfect. We had so much fun! South Beach Miami, FL is so beautiful. The Lincoln Road Mall is awesome. Have you ever been there? I looked it up now that I'm home and it was designed to be like 5th Avenue in NYC or like Rodeo Drive in LA. It was so amazing! The most beautiful people walk around there. Then the shops and cafes were so neat. Everyone has dogs and the dogs were all dressed up. They were the best dressed dogs I ever seen! WOW! It was so fun to see. I wish I would of got photos of all the dogs we seen at Lincoln Rd. Mall. The South Beach Miami, FL beach was so blue, clear, clean, & amazing! The 1st day there I got some amazing photos of Marina on the beach. Marina was so impressed with the quality of my 1st new DSLR (Nikon D90) she said they look like professional photos. Its hard to get photos of Marina because she gets embarrassed if people are looking so she will be still for 1 then she starts walking away. Its a challenge and I wish I could get her to do different things and experiment with a photo shoot but like I said she gets embarrassed so I have to snap 1 or 2 and then when we are in another area and there aren't people then she will let me snap a few more. She also gets tense when I take photos of her but I did get a few really pretty ones that I love. Its funny because Marina will take the most beautiful self armshot photos but they are through mirrors or her head is part cut off but she is so relaxed and I wish she was like that when I took photos. I am excited to upload my photos and really look at all of them.

The cruise was action packed with so much fun. The entire trip we would go to bed at like 3AM and wake up like 6AM. We went to all the shows. I'm so happy Marina wanted to go to all the shows. I love to see people perform. We were on the go nonstop and we still didn't see the entire ship. I really wanted to get photos of the ship's different rooms but we ran out of time. I still haven't posted my photos yet from my new camera because my laptop's harddrive is almost at full capacity so I have to do some serious deleting to upload all the new ones. I'm hoping the day after xmas I can have time to delete and then upload all the new photos with my new camera.

Marina loved the dolphin swim in Tortola! It was a blast. Then we both really loved going to the Dominic Republic. The people there are so friendly and warm. It really left an impression on our hearts. The little kids would chase the truck and wave and scream in excitement like we were Santa Claus or a celebrity. We felt so bad that they were so poor without running water, no electricity, & living in little shacks. We were so impressed and inspired by their happy spirits in spite of their living conditions. The people really fell in love with Marina, I think because of her unique pretty green eyes and shes a really big heart. We went on these waterfalls and it was along a mountain which was slick and slippery from the rain that morning so these kids would help the tourist out. The one who helped Marina said, "YOU BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE YOU!" It was so cute. I didn't know we would have so many people helping and I only had $50's and a $20 and couldn't find change anywhere. I finally found someone to give me 2 ten dollar bills so our teenage helpers got $10 each. The young and old were loving Marina it was so cute. We got alot of photos from there. I got alot of 5 or 6 kids who were all on their own from the ages of about 3-6. One little boy who was maybe 5 had his own horse and was by himself. I got alot of cute photos of all of them. I wish I could have communicated with some of them. They were so intriquing! One would think that with the 3 or 4 years of Spanish in jr. high school and in high school and the recent 2 years in college of spanish that I could remember and have a simple conversation! NO! I never was good at listening or speaking I was better at reading and writing it! LOL! All of the kids we had seen were just on there own roaming around. Little toddlers and kids not older than 6. We also went to a farm and learned alot there. You really can't leave that place without it leaving an impression. The people were so amazing! The ride back I got emotional. I wanted to take all those kids home with me. I really wish I could win the lottery and help those kids and people out. Have you ever been there?


Rob was home briefly. He had to leave on Christmas afternoon and I had to take him to the airport. It was so hard leaving him in the airport on Christmas day.

I had so much to do once I got home for the holidays after my trip. I really wish I had at least 2 more weeks until Christmas came. Thank god Rob was here for 2 days to help me shop because I didn't even start shopping for my kids. We were in the car for 2 days straight, or waiting in lines, or shopping! YIKES! I am always done shopping the day after Thankgiving. I usually just have to pick up stocking stuff in December or I may have forget that I got 1 of my kids more stuff when I pull it all out and start wrapping so off to the stores in December to even it out. We came home in the wee hours Dec.20 and I had stacks of xmas cards and Shutterfly packages. I was like a kid in a candy store. Then I did 95 of my cards. I'm always on the ball with my cards and usually have them done and mailed in the 1st few days of December but with Bella our chocolate lab getting so sick and needing so much care with meds 7 times a day and I had to cook her chicken and rice and feed her 4 times a day, the early December snowstorm, me being alone and having to take care of everything by myself while Rob is 500 miles away, then Marina and I leaving for 11 days and being away from Dec. 9- Dec.20 really made it impossible to do what I normally do in December! Its a miracle I got it all accomplished. I'm exhausted!

I am truly grateful that Rob was home even if it was just briefly since he missed all the holidays and special events in the past 4.5 months with us. Now he will be missing New Years Eve and New Years Day with us. Its been so difficult and doesn't get any easier. Up until yesterday we only had 2.5 hours of family time in 4.5 months but then got 2 hours in so now a total of 4.5 hours in 4.5 months! Its so crazy!

Hoping you and your family have a happy, healthy, joyful, fun, & prosperous New Year! :)

I love all your Christmas pictures, the kids with Santa, the elves hats (love those. Your headers are awesome. I'm so happy you started a blog! YAY! Your photography is beautiful!
Merry Christmas Ann, Randy, Alyssa, Tyler, & Trinity
Have FUN!
12/3/2010 3:27:00 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
Looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Sorry that Tyler was sick again this year! I love the photobook you created!

Well we are buried in over 3 ft of snow here in West Seneca, NY( a suburb of Buffalo, NY). It came down in 24 hours! Thank god Rob is home and snowblowed and shoveled us out! He was out there over 8 hours total in the 24 hour period. It was coming down like 3-5 inches per hour in my area and we have a 150 ft long driveway so by the time Rob would get 1/4 done that area was already bombarded with snow! Its so crazy! People were stuck in there cars for over 24 hours! It almost was us because we were heading out that direction on the thruway but stopped home during the storm and the kids said, "WELL I GUESS WE AREN'T GOING TO THE MOVIES" I was shocked because it started out like a normal Buffalo storm that we deal with every few days here in the winter. We never watched the news or anything because we didn't think it was anything different. I hope this all stops because I am going to Miami next week. Anyways, I will be happy to get away from all this snow! I will try to add some of the photos on my site this weekend! I left some links on SF Guru Central and you can kind of get an idea of what we are going through!

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
12/2/2010 7:59:55 PM - 001076975951
Ann, thanks for coming by to say Hello. Yes thanksgiving was nice and lowkey. We are having a chill here but no snow thank goodness. The trees here are all bare. Glad you like the autumn photos of the East Coast. Hope you family is well. How is your Christmas Wish List coming along? any thing you would like old St. Nick to bring you? I sure hope you get what's on your list.

Anyway keep warm in N. Calif. and have a hot cup of cocoa.
12/2/2010 1:50:28 PM - 001024320926
Boo! Love the headers! Sorry I'm late to the party, I have been sick for about a week now, completely missed Thanksgiving! Speaking of Thanksgiving, your book is awesome, loved it!! Hope that the kiddos are doing well!!!
11/12/2010 2:54:58 PM - 002020640084
Omg....is is really 37 degrees in your area right now? WOW! Buffalo, NY(West Seneca, NY) is actually warmer than CA right now! AMAZING! :)

Ann,

Wow - you guys sure had a busy Halloween! I love the headers and the the photos from Bishop's - so cool! My kid's are getting old enough to not be into Halloween so much and I miss those days - so enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! Hope you continue to have a great Fall! Hugs!
11/9/2010 6:07:24 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
I love the Halloween headers! What fun! The costumes are awesome! You have such a gorgeous family!

I wanted to stop by to wish you a Happy Birthday! I know I'm a bit early but I was thinking of you today and sent you out a cute birthday card! Hope it gets there in time! What are you planning to do this birthday? I can't wait to hear all about it! Talk to you soon! :)
11/9/2010 4:04:08 PM - 001076975951
Ann, fabulous and fun Halloween pics and the header is perfect. Brings back precious memories of when my girls were young and went trick or treating. Thanks for sharing & hope all is well.
11/9/2010 12:57:07 PM - 000082378991
Freakin' FABULOUS Halloween pics!!!!! LOVE it. And really, I like October so much, I could totally have another October this month! I'm going to email you our Halloween photo ;o)
11/7/2010 7:07:15 PM - 002035648808
What wonderful pictures of your little ones..I must say, Triity sure looks like her mama. Oh, dear, I just spotted your carmel apples on the right. Now, I must have one, lol! This pumkin patch looks so much like the one I took Luke to a couple of weeks ago. The pics are downloaded and that is as far as it has gone, drats. Anyway, I alway love stopping by and looking at your wonderful family.
11/2/2010 8:30:27 PM - 002088910291
Hi Ann, I loved your camping book that was featured, CONGRATULATIONS!!! It reminds me a lot of when we go camping, except Alan does not bring his guitar! The giant fires remind me of what we like to do best! We did not do much over the Halloween weekend, since my grandson went to a Halloween party for kids! So we just stayed home and did nothing, which is how I felt that day anyway! I love all the giant pumpkin pics that are going over my head, I will have to check them out! I have been so behind on share sites lately it is not even funny! I can't seem to keep up with them all, and keep up with book reviews and housework! I am going to check out your site! deb
10/31/2010 4:04:48 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Congratulations on having your camping photobook featured! I loved it! What a fun tradition! :)
10/31/2010 2:21:52 AM - 000093706714
Hey you! I am still searching for you and Julie's SF video debut! I will keep searching, but I already know it is FAB! I feel like I am so far behind on too many things.........but I will keep a look out for it. I hope you and your beautiful family are all doing well. I miss all the interaction with my SF buddies but try and pop in when I can. You are always in my thoughts! Hugs Cheri
10/27/2010 12:15:19 AM - 002020640084
I am still searching for your new Shutterfly video but can't find it anywhere! On SF Guru Central Sharon said she seen it but I can't find it there or here! I'm so excited to see your latest video since your last years video was amazing! :)
10/26/2010 11:56:30 PM - 002020640084
By the way, thanks so much for stopping by my site to see my new page I created for Rob. Its a work in progress and I have been adding to it like crazy! LOL! Rob briefly glanced when he visited but hasn't really sat down and checked it out but he is going to the library tomorrow so he should get to see. I even added widgets for the 1st time and then I added a journal section. Rob will be home again in 8 days! It seems like forever from the when he visited last time! It going to be a LONG WINTER! It stinks because Rob missed out on our anniversary for the 1st time, Marina's 16th bday, sweetest day. Now this will be the 1st Halloween and Thankgiving we will be 500 miles apart and not get to be together as a family! Its doesn't get any easier! It is pure torture! :(
10/26/2010 11:49:05 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
I love the pumpkin farm album and headers! Excellent job! :)
I bet the kids are so excited for Halloween. I can't wait to see them all dressed up! :)
10/26/2010 3:14:12 PM - 001024320926
Hi there Ann, Loving all the fall fun and pumpkins, including the punkins :) Looks like they had a great time!! I hope that all the school activities aren't keeping you too busy. Your photobook was wonderful as always!! HAppy Halloween!!
10/25/2010 7:21:59 PM - 000082378991
hey there! haven't visited in awhile... and it was great to "see" you and the family! happy hauntings this weekend and make sure i see the costume pics one way or another!
xoxo
10/21/2010 11:01:58 PM - 001023411097
Ann, Ann, Ann.......hey lady, I hope you are doing great. You are such a busy and talended lady. I say your photoshoot at Shutterfly and I love it! Your book salso is just so great and what a fun time had by all. You have such a sweet family and your little kids are just precious. Take care and big hugs from our house to yours. bj
10/20/2010 5:09:55 PM - 002088910291
Ann, I looked at your book, from the e-mail, but it did not give me the option to leave a comment, is it in the gallery? I looked at the recent books, but did not see it! It is the book where you are camping at Lk. Shasta! What a beautiful place to camp! It looks like everyone had a great time! Your kids are really adorable! The little dancing girl is so cute! I also love the pics of the kids holding the snakes! I used to have a red tailed boa for a pet from the time it was tiny, until it was about 45 lbs. I had Eli, for about 8 years! I finally gave him to someone who had more time to play with him, as they like attention too, and are quite friendly when raised right! Anyway I would like to comment on your book if i knew where it was! Deb
10/18/2010 4:32:49 PM - 002076668805
Beautiful kids! Thanks for the inspiration to possibly start Shutterfly Family Site!

Carla
10/18/2010 1:35:38 AM - 000040317923
Ann, I wanted to drop by and thank you for the nice compliments on my photobook. Julie has told me a lot about you (we had 22 hours in the car driving to the Balloonfest - lots of catching up time!) I love your site and the photoshoot you did with the kids...their personalities sure come through. Beautiful.
9/28/2010 2:23:10 AM - 000074469281
Hey there Ann! Love your headers. I can't believe all your kids were holding the snakes -- even Trinity! That is very impressive. They look heavy. Made for great photos! I love the First day of school pics and Trinity as a dancing princess. She is just so darn CUTE. All your kids are so cute and talented!!
Love your site, wanted to do a quick drop-by. Trying to get things packed....
9/24/2010 5:59:40 PM - 002020640084
I love that the kids were brave enough to hold the snakes. I am petrified of many things but my kids were also always brave enought to hold or pet things like this! I wish I wasn't such a chicken with everything! I love the back to school album! I'm going to look around!

Thanks again for all your love and support! I really appreciate it! Your such a doll and I'm so glad we met! I really hope we get to meet up in person someday! I want to go to CA again! Rob and I went by ourselves in 2004 and I would love to bring the kids to CA. Rob has tons of relatives in CA and I have my great Uncle Carl and his whole family and grandkids there as well. I really need to win the lottery because there are so many places I want to go and people I want to see very soon! LOL! :)
9/23/2010 9:26:46 PM - 001024320926
Ann, love the updates!! The kiddos are cute as heck, love all those school pictures!! Fun times!!
9/23/2010 5:35:50 PM - 000031826072
I would agree with Tiff - great models, but the snakes.....UGH! Hate those things!!!!!!! I must admit - the pictures are adorable though (even with those slimy 'ole snakes) - they just can't overshadow the cute kiddos!
9/23/2010 3:18:23 PM - 001034435843
great updates! Love that little trinity! Can't wait to meet up with you guys next year at the big Dland!
9/23/2010 12:12:08 PM - 000082378991
you have such the wonderful group of models for your models. too cute!!!! all of them... minus the snake! ;o)
9/1/2010 2:44:31 PM - 000031826072
Ann, I love all the camping pictures. Definitely looks like a good time was had by all. Smore's....yum - miss those from my younger days! The bridge pictures are incredible! Dramatic! Very cool. Hope you and the fam are having a great time in the last few days of summer. Happy a great Labor Day weekend!
9/1/2010 12:01:47 PM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, it has been a while since I've stopped by. I hope you & your family are well. I love your home page header that is so cool. Any plans for the Labor day weekend? Earl is expected to hit the area this weekend. I sure hope he stays away. Are your children back at school? Anyway keep on exploring and enjoy all your adventures. Have a wonderful weekend and take care.
9/1/2010 1:23:21 AM - 002035648808
Great camping pictures Ann....just had to stop by and see the fun that you all had. It looks like there were some muscians in the group...Oh, I love smore's..wish I had one right now, lol! Love all the fun pictures!
9/1/2010 12:55:11 AM - 001023411097
I have not been camping in years! As I get older I'm so afraid of bears. While in the Tetons National Park one of the campers had his rear end bitten by a bear. This man was between the cubs and the momma! Look like you guys had a blast and it makes me want to camp again. As long as I have a good bed, ha and a fan here in Texas. Hugs bj
8/31/2010 10:38:38 PM - 001034435843
Hey Ann! Wow! That camping looks likes tons and tons of fun! Love the lake pics!
8/31/2010 3:52:13 PM - 002065887734
Ann, I just stopped by to thank you for letting me know about the solid colors and saw Alyssa's great party. I want to come back and really check out your site later. I am late for an appointment now...as always. I almost didn't find the solid pages even after you told me "sports". I looked at the sports and just saw those 4 or 6 patterns and thought, "Oh, no. That's not what I want at all." To see, I started a 'fake' book, and then all these wonderful backgrounds showed up. I haven't been making Shutterfly books due to I couldn't find good backgrounds. I will now go into EACH option, make a 'fake' book and look at the backgrounds I guess. Thank you so much. Barbara Jean p.s. Do you know of an easier way to check out all the backgrounds? I know you are busy, but when you get time in the next few weeks...or months, with school starting... I'd love to know. I'd be making more books. Thanks again!
8/26/2010 1:16:51 PM - 000078326924
Hi, my name is Lin, and I live in Simi Valley, CA, just looking around to get some ideas for my sites. I realized after the fact, that I should have made different sections for my pics in lieu of adding albums, as this gives one more options to change the effects. If they are in albums, then only the top album can be changed.
Very Nice Job.

Three questions: How did you get the weather forecast up for the different cities?
and the "I love you daddy" was that scanned as a jpeg and then placed into the slide show?
Is there anyway to move you pics to another album without doing it one at a time?
Thanks, Lin



8/25/2010 11:01:36 PM - 001024320926
Hi Ann, How's the new school year shaping up? I haven't had a child in school since 2007!! I can hardly believe that. Trust me Rider put me thru the hoops and it will be remembered many, many years from now. I hope that the kids got some great treachers, they can make or break ya!! Just stopping to say Hi and see what's new :)
8/23/2010 3:20:38 PM - 000031826072
Hi Ann! Stopping by to say hello and to let you know that I lifted a few of YOUR pictures of the hotel and of you being photographed from the Shutterfly shoot and added them to my site. I didn't have a single picture of the hotel or of anyone actually being filmed or photographed and I wanted my family to be able to see some of those. I made sure to give you credit, so I hope that's Ok with you!
I took a look at Tyler's butterfly pictures while I was here - wicked cute! I love the story of Tyler and his butterfly kit. So fun!
8/17/2010 2:46:15 AM - 001023411097
WHEN WILL WE SEE YOUR SHUTTERFLY VIDEO? I CAN'T WAIT. YOU ARE SO GOOD AND READY TO HONOR OUR SHUTTERFLY!!!
8/8/2010 9:01:03 AM - 002018483485
Every time I visit your photo site I am blown away by your talent, your light and your life. Kudos Ann!

8/4/2010 1:28:16 AM - 002020640084
Happy Anniversary Ann and Randy! I hope your day is perfect in everyway! You both deserve it! :)

Ann
Thank you for sharing Alyssa's Birthday photos. I am enjoying to watch all the photos that you took on her birthday. What a wonderful surprised! Thanks for sharing. Happy Birthday again Alyssa.
7/22/2010 10:11:44 PM - 000074469281
What a rockin party Alyssa had!! Love the pics! I'll stop back to look at butterflies.
I enjoyed the bday pics!
7/22/2010 9:52:05 PM - 000074469281
Woo-hoo! What a great header of Alyssa's party! Happy birthday sweetie. TEN is a HUGE deal. My nephew Jack hits double digits in October!! Your message above made me get teary eyed. It is crazy to think your first born is already 10, I'm sure you & Randy did reminice on her first ten years. She is so beautiful. I love the photos of Alyssa and her siblings with a cake. I will check out your fab photos!
7/19/2010 10:49:19 PM - 001024320926
Thanks for stopping by and leaving the great comments!! I have to tell you the fireworks pictures were an accident. I turned up teh ISO to 800 and angled myself to see the glow on her face, it worked and I was happy. Probably the first night photos Ihave ever taken that I liked.
Going to be heading to the gallery to check out your new book here in a minute or two, I know it will be good :)
Loving those fun, fun headers and all the great pictures Ann!
7/14/2010 6:01:49 PM - 000031826072
BTW, I know what you mean - it's fun to have all this stuff going on in the summer, but exhausting!!!!! Well, all that running around and parties and activities should be keeping us in good shape, right?
Also, sounds like Alyssa had an awesome 10th birthday! They grow up soooo fast. Jarrett is getting ready to turn 13 (I can't believe it!) and it's freaking me out. How did my baby boy turn into a TEENAGER with peach fuzz above hsi lip? YIKES! Alyssa is turing into such a beautiful young lady - not a little girl anymore!!!! Double yikes! Well, girl, at least you still have a couple of "babies" in your household - I have ALL teenagers as of Jarrett's Bday in August!
Before i forget to mention it, both you and Randy are looking like HOTTIES.......wonderful job with all that hard work to get there!

Hey Ann! I am loving all the new stuff - 4th of July, Father's Day, Swimming - wow you guys have been busy!!! Isn't summer grand? Like Joey mentioned, I, too, am so busy during the summer that I get way behind on visiting share sites and viewing photobooks and everything. I'm trying to catch up a little bit this evening! Our summer has been great so far and it looks like yours has been too! Woohoo! Keep up the fun!
7/13/2010 11:30:22 PM - 000074469281
Wow Ann what fabulous photos. I love the headers. You got some great action shots of the kids jumping in the pool and of Trinity flying in mid-air!! Your 4th sounds like so much fun. I like the Father's Day album too and the pancake feed. Yum. Fish tacos sound good - I've never had them. I have been soooooooo bad at visiting sites. My summer has been busy too. Trying to spend as much time at the lakes as possible. I seem to neglect my sharesite and update my summer site more. Although, i still haven't added photos of this last weekend. Thanks for stopping by. I thought I added photos to YOUR pictures page. Maybe I didn't. I'll add some sometime soon.
Take care.
7/13/2010 6:19:02 PM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, How are things coming along with you and your family? Hope your summer so far is fun. Thanks for stopping by and glad you like my Travel Sharing Photos. Feel free to share.

Looks like you had fun on the 4th. Fun parade. Great pictures Ann. Lots of fireworks and fun up this way too.
Nika netted a 19" trout for me on fathers day. Looking forward to the campout later in the month. WE moved a full Cable-Wellington full upright in. What a beast!

6/26/2010 5:17:49 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
My baby boy was just going off to preschool waving goodbye on the bus it seems like & now he graduated from high school on Thursday! I can't believe how fast the time flies! I am so proud of Joe! We had a mini celebration at the Cheesecake Factory! It was wonderful! Then on July 17 we are having his grad party! I am hoping to rent a popcorn machine, snocone machine, & cotton candy machine! I found the perfect pinata on the Party City website! Its a hundred dollar bill $$$$$! Isn't that so fun?!!! Its even green in the school colors! I wanted a pinata but had no idea what green or gold thing I could find for an 18 year old! I'm so excited for the party but have so much to do!

We have to go check out IN now and may have to relocate there! Its a huge mess! I updated my latest news page w/ more bad new w/ the relocating! I have been meaning to update it but haven't had a chance! Its so much easier to share the latest news to everyone at the same time then to retype the same things over and over again! LOL!

I loved Alyssa's Annie book! I'm so proud of her! She is talented, smart, responsible, kind, friendly, outgoing, & beautiful! You are so lucky to have 3 amazing kids!

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
6/20/2010 5:56:41 AM - 002066991916
WOW! Tyler's birthday had so much funfilled. The balloons are so wonderful and the cake is so creative. Very outstanding job. Awesome!
6/14/2010 4:36:10 AM - 002020640084
Ann,
Thanks for stopping by and solving that mystery for me! I was so baffled but thought it was you but I wasn't 100% sure! LOL! Have a wonderful week! :)
6/13/2010 4:35:47 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
I love all the new albums! I see you guys have been busy with fun....fun....& more fun! I want to come to one of your bday parties! Randy's cakes + all your party planning details+fun activities+ all the special touches + your topnotch photos=A PERFECT CELEBRATION! :)

Just wanted to see what you have been up to and say hello! I'm not sure when I'll be back with the relocating to PA! Its been so crazy busy! We are going to PA again this week Wed-Friday! Rob has his tour of the plant on Friday! We went last week to see that area of PA for the 1st time! I was a nervous wreck & doing so much research because the steel plant is in a high crime neighborhood! I researched areas around there and researched the schools! I found 3 top picks & I all the sleepless nights of research paid off! The 3 schools & areas I picked are amazing! Our top high school pick is called Cumberland Valley High School which won bronze medal for being the top schools in America & the music department won national recognition for being one of the top music departments in America! I thought of you the whole time! Then I guess the photography teacher is a professor in the college and this high school has more equipment than the college does! The school is huge! It has 2500 students! The school is amazing! I want to schedule a tour in 2 weeks so Marina can check it out!

I miss you and all my SF friends! I will try every extra second I get! Enjoy your summer! :)
6/13/2010 2:10:15 PM - 000074469281
Love the headers above of Tylers Bday. The big 7!! The middle photo is priceless!

Wow Ann, your kids have grown so much since the last time I was here. I love the pics of your kids with all the Disney characters. I just love Disney. I can't get enough of it. I have only been to Orlando's Disney. It looks like you all had a blast. I just love all the pics on this page, and again, love the photobooks. I remember my daughter having a blast the two different times that she was in to getting all the characters photo's. I just might have to scan them and post them on her page. Oh, boy, now I have just given myself another project, lol! I really do love your photography and such wonderful subjects to photograph!
5/18/2010 8:54:18 PM - 001024320926

Take care!

Hi Ann! Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments. Yes, the clouds in the Keeper of the Plains pictures are real.....it was the most amazing day...very sunny, but with thoe big, giant, white fluffy clouds floating around....very cool!
I am so impressed with the AWESOME results of all of you and Randy's hard work on the weight loss thing...that is a lot of weight and that is hard to do (I don't have to tell you, huh?) You both look fabulous and I salute you. Brandon and I keep trying to work on getting rid of our "middle age spread" bellies, but it is so hard! Ciao!
5/10/2010 11:11:11 PM - 001024320926
Someday, someday Ann, we will have our picture together :) It will be a blast I'm sure of it :)
5/9/2010 3:46:02 PM - 002020640084
Oh..& can you believe its 37 degrees here! I told you we would pay for having a mild winter & it would probably be snowing Memorial day!
5/9/2010 3:43:55 PM - 002020640084

I hope all is well and you're staying busy with the fun stuff of kiddos :)
4/28/2010 5:55:42 PM - 000031826072
Wow - was that actually ANN visiting my site recently??????? lol - I know you have been busy, busy, busy enjoying tons fo quality family time. I was so envious of the Guru meetup in Disneyland - how very cool. It looks like you all had so much fun. I know what you mean about when you actually meet "one of us." When I met Lisa - I felt so comfotable - just like I'd known her forever! What a FABULOUS idea to all get together and surprise Ms. Joey - wouldn't that be fun??!?? The Shutterfly family is just so amazing in every way!
I have been a busy girl myself lately - between Jordan's soccer games, Jarrett and his school hassles, work, and just living life - well, it's just always something. Oh and Miracle League just started up again this year so we'll be busy every Saturday all thru May, but I love it!
Keep on enjoying all the family perfection, my dear, live it up!!!!!!!!! Those adorable three are growing up FAST!
4/27/2010 2:43:30 PM - 001023411097
DEAR ANN! HOW OUR SWEET FRIEND TODAY! I LOVE YOUR BOOKS, YOUR PAGES AND YOUR SWEET FACE! YOU ARE SUCH AN ASSET TO SHUTTERFLY AND ALL YOUR FRIENDS. HUGS FROM TEXAS ON THIS BEAUTIFUL MORNING! BJ
4/25/2010 4:36:20 PM - 000074469281
Hey Ann, thanks for dropping by my site last week. I have been so bad at visiting everyone. I'm working on my sister birthday so I haven't been in Gallery as often as I'd like and I'm trying to get back to visiting sites.
The headers on my page were taken w/ new camera. I didn't have any for this week, so i left the header the same. I took some odds and ends pictures just to give me more practice! Its been fun. Still have lots to learn. Your pictures and site are always so fun to look at.
Have a good week and talk to you soon!
4/25/2010 12:22:27 AM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, LOVE your home page it is fabulous and I am thrilled that your husband has been bitten by the travel bug.
 May it continue and that you have many more adventures in your life.

I hope you and your family are all doing well.  How is your weekend? 

Not much new on my end just having some work done on my house this coming week.  Enjoy your week and I'll visit real soon. 
4/22/2010 12:36:27 PM - 001024320926
Ohh Ann you're gonna love San Diego!! The Harbor walk is where the kissing statue, the Midway, Maritime Museum and Anthony's Grotto are, lots to see and do, all within walking distance of each other. That's also the area for the tours on the water, some for the sealife, some for the military ships, and some over to Coronado. I've not made it over to LaJolla beach yet, heard it's wonderful but I loooooved Coronado beach and the whole area!! Hotel Del Coronado is beautiful and the beach is sparkly, literally it sparkles :) Lots of shopping areas. Back over on the Harbor area at the end is Seaport Village full of shopping, pretty flowers and beautiful ocean views. Seaport Village was designed by the 'Imagineers' at Disney :) There's Balboa Park, take the trolley out to it, not walking distance!! The San Diego Zoo is right there by BalBoa Park and is considered one of the best zoos around, I haven't been but I want to badly, maybe next year :) Over in Seaport Village I did the Land/Sea tour last year, it was wonderful, starts on the streets and goes into the water for the Harbor tour, that's where I saw all the sealions, hundreds of them!! I could go on and on and on. Definitely Coronado is my favorite, it was voted the best beach in Southern California. If you're in your car then you could drive over the famous blue Coronado bridge to Coronado :):) Whatever you end up doing in San Diego I hope you have a blast and of course take many, many picture :) Oh and call up Rachael, she'd probably meet up with you too :) Niki says she's only 2 hours from there :)
Love all your pictures and the kiddos!! Love visiting!!
4/22/2010 1:45:22 AM - 000064383827
Ann,
Got your question and compliment on my Disney scrapbook pages in progress. The layouts you were asking about have the following credits...
Simply Yin Template - Modified
Star Mask - Scrapping with Liz
Mickey Clipart - DISigns
Britt Designs - Opening Night (Recolored), Happiest Place on Earth
Clubhouse Mini By Andrea
Natalie from PA - Character Symbol, HS Logo
Date go round - Stolen Moments combined with Opening Night (Recolored) Britt Designs

I normally post most of my layout on Mousescrappers.com if you haven't been there yet they have tons of individuals with great disney layouts and tons of inspiration and ideas.

LOVE the headers and all the fun Disneyland photo's! WOOHOO Disneyland is on my bucket list!
4/21/2010 8:42:36 PM - 002088910291
Ann, Thanks for coming to my site, I love yours, and the Disney book is fantastic! I wanted you to know that even though you are a member of my site, your pic does not come up, or does Carm's! It say's I have 19 members, but only shows 17 of them, do you know why, or how to fix this! Then I won't have to wait for you to come to my site to get to yours!! And thanks for the comments on my mountains, they were taken about an hour from my house! A mountain we always like to go up for a hike or camping, called Mt Pilchuck, in the cascade mountain range, of Washington state! My camera is a Samsung SLR, and I will be starting a class on the 11th of May to learn how to use all the fancy stuff on it! Right now I just keep it on auto, and shoot! I agree with you about bulb flowers, they are so pretty, I am fortunate enough to be able to witness some of the greatest bulb shows in the U.S. every year, living only about 45 minutes from the Tulip festival fields in Skagit Valley!!!
4/21/2010 7:55:13 PM - 000074469281
Love you header of Disney, Ann! Looks so magical. I also LOVED all the photos and stories from when you girls met at Disney. My headers are from new camera. Still need practice but having fun. Thanks for the comment on my moon pictures. I'm so excited they actually turned out!
Have a super day!
4/19/2010 12:34:58 AM - 001024320926
Ann, I love the pictures you posted with all the Shutterfly gals, looks like it was a blast!! Miss Trinity is a hoot and I can tell I would love her instantly!!
Hope all is well.
4/18/2010 2:25:58 PM - 001099993350
You have such a warm site Ann, beautiful mix of family, fun and of course, flowers. Gotta love those Disney pics, been ages since I was there. Sorry I have not been around too much but hopefully, that will change. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

I love the carnival theme birthday party! My niece and nephew share the same birthday and are also brother and sister. My girls' birthday's are two days apart - and 6 years difference.

I do enjoy your first of spring flower pictures and Miss Pop cannot get any more adorable than that!

I'll have to agree with you on Alyssa's glasses - they do look FAB on her!

Enjoyed your Disneyland Trip album "AGAIN" - I think I have viewed it 3 or 4 times now and see something new each time! How fun!
3/30/2010 4:57:01 PM - 002020640084
Ann,
I just discovered the Miss Pop album & I love it!!! Oh...those photos are BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, PERFECT, FABULOUS, & SO MUCH FUN! Pure happiness & joy! Miss Pop is quite the performer & little model!!!! :)

Anyways, I know you are so excited for Disney! Wish I could go, 2! Someday, you will have to be my tour guide in Disney in CA! I haven't been there yet! Happy Easter! :)
3/28/2010 3:45:53 PM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, How are things going for you? Has spring arrived in Northern CA? We still have chills and wind and hope the warmth and sun arrive soon. I can't put away my winter coat as of yet. :-( I will explore your site during the week and hope you have a wonderful day. Best wishes and take care.

P.S.  Love the new header.   Beautiful!!

Thanks for the comments on my Seattle Public Market photos!! I made a book of the whole market! It is in the U.S. Travel section, and also on my home page! I made it so others who are traveling to Seattle WA. will know what a great place it is to visit! This is my first time to your site, and am enjoying looking around!!!

Fabulous snow shots Ann, looks like snow has hit the entire Shutterfly community. Apologies for not stopping-by but life has been a bit crazy but now seems to be settling and even have had some time to play with my camera. Awesome "My Sweet Boy" and "A Trin Grin" shots.

Yes,my email is finally working although now it no longer has a ding - you know the msn sound whenn you got an email? Its much quieter. On the phone with tech support for an hour but he fixed it. YEAH! Plus i deleted over 1000 emails that I didn't need, or hope I didn't. It does feel good to clean that up.

Hi Ann, thanks for the stop-by! My Aunt & Uncle are fine. My Uncle is still in the Dominican Republic and my Aunt came back last night. They were a ways away when the earthquake hit and where on there porch and could feel it hit but didn't realize the devastation until 2 days later. They then took a bus to see all the missionaries coming in and they started to help what they could. Scary & sad situation.
1/15/2010 4:25:40 PM - 001076975951
Good morning Ann, Thanks for stopping by my sites. And I'm glad that you are viewing my Europe photos. YES, you must add that to your to do list in life. You will truly enjoy the sites, flavors and history. Europe is my favorite place to travel to. My goal is to return next year and that I'll be able to book another cruise in a few months.

How are you and your family doing? I hope all is well. Any special plans for the weekend? Whatever your plans enjoy and have fun. I'll visit again real soon.
1/13/2010 3:43:26 PM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, Love the headers on your home page. How are things going in your neck of the woods? I'm still feeling a bit under the weather but thought I should visit some friends here on Shutterfly just to say Hi. I think I'll have a look around and see what's new. have a great day and be well.

Wow, Ann! You girls blow me away with your share sites! This page is AMAZING. I absolutely love the "Santa's Helpers, Not" pictures. The kids expressions, and the interplay between the 3 of them is what makes them so special. Well, that and the fact they are so excited about Christmas! So adorable And the santa pictures are priceless. I'm this excited, and I haven't even checked out any of the other pages yet. While I'm here, I want to wish you and yours a very peaceful, fun and successful New Year. And I want to thank you for all your thoughtful, encouraging comments on my books. I have enjoyed getting to know you this year, and I'm excited to share 2010 with you and the other gurus!
1/5/2010 8:04:02 PM - 000031826072

Love all the new Christmas pictures. The header pic of Trinity at her new Princess vanity is classic. I love all the snuggies, too! What a magical Christmas you had - awesome!
12/29/2009 4:09:49 PM - 000074469281
Great photos of your new lens. Looks like it works perfect! Is it hard to get used to?
12/29/2009 4:04:37 PM - 000074469281
I LOVED your Christmas pictures. So much fun! Who got the snuggie? I'm so happy you had a wonderful magical Christmas. Kids make it so much better! Their eyes light up and are so thrilled. Love Randy on the pony and Alyssa with her Rockband Wii! FUN. Her guitar looks sweet!
Happy New Year!

I loved viewing all the family Christmas shots. EVERYTHING looks and sounds ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! It's late and I need to get to sleep, but I just wanted to stop by and send my very good wishes to you and your family. Thanks for your frequent 'cyber love' Ann. Your thoughts and prayers truly are appreciated. I miss all of you very much. (And always look forward to seeing your 'photo of the day' postings to FB. Never miss 'em!

Until next time, please know you are in my thoughts. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Big Hugs

I am so happy for you and for your family that everybody have a great Christmas. It looks that Santa's around you and all your kids have so much fun. Thanks for sharing Anna. Excellent shot!
12/29/2009 2:11:06 AM - 000031826072
Hi Ann!
I was so thrilled to hear that your Christmas was magical. That's the way it should be! I love the Rock Chick and Yellow Submarine stories - sounds like so much fun. Doesn't it just make your heart glad that your kids have so much fun together?!? So cool! And how exciting that Mommy got a new lens - hooRAY! It'll be great fun to practice your portrait shots with it (although I have a hard time imagine your portrait shots being any better than they already were without the new lens!)
Good for you for concentrating on family fun in December.....Shutterfly will always be here, but those kids will grown up before you know it - enjoy, enjoy, enjoy (and you seem to do just that!)
So do you have fun New Year's Eve plans? Keep the good times rollin'........Happy Holidays!
12/28/2009 5:17:28 PM - 002020640084
HOPE YOU HAD A MAGICAL CHRISTMAS! SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD FUN RELAXING PLAYING DRESS UP, LEGOS, & VIDEO GAMES! WE JUST RELAXED BUT THE KIDS WENT TO THE MALL! ROB DROPPED THEM OFF & ANOTHER PARENT PICKED THEM ALL UP! IT WAS CRAZY IN THE MALLS I GUESS!

IT RAINED HERE ON CHRISTMAS!!!! IT WAS SO STRANGE! I DON’T EVER REMEMBER RAIN ON CHRISTMAS! I FOUND PHOTOS OF THE 2001 CHRISTMAS EVE SNOW STORM & SCANNED & ADDED TO MY CHRISTMAS PAGE! THE 2001 BUFFALO SNOW STORM STARTED ON CHRISTMAS EVE 2001 & BLASTED US WITH ALMOST 7 FT. OF SNOW IN 5 DAYS!!!! I WISH I HAD A DIGITAL CAMERA THEN BUT I THANK GOD HAD SOME FILM LEFT & GOT ABOUT 18 SHOTS OF THAT UNBELIEVABLE STORM WE WEREN’T PREPARED FOR! AT THE TIME WE JUST GOT BACK FROM A TENNESSEE VACATION & DIDN’T HAVE MILK, EGGS, BREAD, ETC. ANYWAYS, IF YOU HAVE TIME THIS WEEK PLEASE CHECK OUT THAT ALBUM ITS ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE IN THE MIDDLE WITH A COPY OF AN ARTICLE ABOVE IT! YOUR KIDS WILL NOT BELIEVE THE SNOW PHOTOS!!!! OUR FRONT LAWN WAS OVER 9 FT DEEP!!! OUR CARS, FENCES, ETC. WERE BURIED!!!! MY KIDS WANTED TO PLAY IN THE BACKYARD & I WAS PETRIFIED BECAUSE IT WAS 7FT & WHAT IF THEY FELL TO THE BOTTOM & WAS BURIED! THANK GOD THEY WERE ABLE TO GET BY & PLAY WITHOUT FALLING TO THE BOTTOM! A SNOW STORM I WILL NEVER FORGET!

Hi Ann!
Stopping by to soak up some Christmas cheer and wish you the merriest of "almost Christmas" weeks! I can see that you and the family are having a grand time this holiday season. I loved the annual Christmas photo card slide show - what a hoot! Those little Abbotts are just adorable and get cuter all the time. The family memories you are making right now will be some of the best - keep enjoying, girl!
Holiday Hugs,
Julie
12/19/2009 3:13:12 AM - 002035648808
I think it is nice that you decorate for the kids. We still do and our youngest is 19. We cannot bear to part with our childrens ornaments from the time they were babies until now. I wouldn't trade fancy for our kid tree for anything in the world. We have somehow managed not to break any of the kids ornaments throughout the kids rough housing and playing ball in the house when they were younger:) Now we have Little Luke and I imagine it will be the same way again, soon. I can't wait:)
12/19/2009 1:37:53 AM - 002035648808
Hi Ann...Your page is so gorgeous. The headers are precious. You have some of the most photogenic children I think I have seen. The dark hair and eyes, wow! Trinity's preschool Christmas Party looked like too much fun. And the gingerbread house is fantastic. I think it is so neat that you have family traditions with your little ones. I still crack up at my "kids" because if I try and do something different at Christmas or move a decoration they throw a fit. How funny is that. Now, I just add to the decorations and that tickles them. Thank you so much for the wonderful comments that you left on my two books. I would loved to have some more time and do some digital scapbook pages, but I had about 400 pictures to find and scan for both of these books and it was too much of a last minute decision to make the books. Now, I am inspired to get literally thousands more pictures on my computer before they are completely ruined. My next big project is to sneak in my mom's house, grab her albums and get them on my computer. I am anxious to get these two books in to see the quality of the photos. Suprisingly, there were no low resolution warnings. I have a lot of that with my digital camera. I know that some of my 27 years old sons pictures were poor quality and I am a little worried how the books will look. My mom will be excited none the less. Shuttefly has been such a God send for me. I hated scrapbooking and found it very tedious. I can spend hours on shutterfly and it seems like minutes. I hope that you and your family are having a wonderful Christmas Season, and by the looks of your site it certainly looks like you guys are. Take care and have a wonderful week-end!
12/18/2009 12:19:18 AM - 001024320926
Ohhhh I love the Santa headers, just insane fun :) HoHoHo!! I came by to say that I can't look at YouTube at work so that's been a hang up for me in seeing your video again. So I watched it on my iPhone :) Too fun!! Excellent!! You're a rockstar!!
12/17/2009 5:22:32 AM - 002020640084
ANN,
THE CHRISTMS HEADERS WITH SANTA ARE PRICELESS!!!! WHAT FUN! I'M LOVING ALL THIS HOLIDAY CHEER ON YOUR HOME PAGE! THIS ALBUM OF TRINITY'S PARTY IS ADORABLE! :)
12/15/2009 12:07:15 PM - 002059460698
I love the pictures of Santas Little Helpers....very adorable and fun to look at!
12/13/2009 8:47:56 PM - 000074469281
Love those headers. I think its hilarious you guys got snow. Bet it melted right away. I think its great the kids had a snowball fight before school. Reminds me of the movie Elf. I love everything Christmassy about your site. Your 3 kids are adorable. I love how you took their photos. Very creative and fun. Gotta make it fun when kids are involved.
Alyssa's snowman looks like an ice sculpture!!
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas and New Year in 2010!

Hi Ann! I am so glad that you've got the card and gift that I sent to you. By the way Ann I really like your house party video. That is Awesome! You looks so beautiful! Who's made the video? Absolutely wonderful!
12/4/2009 8:32:39 PM - 000031826072
I always seem to get on here and then forget something I wanted to say.....I was going to mention that it was awesome to get to meet Lisa and it would be so sweet if we could all meet somewhere some time. How fun would that be? Very cool that some of us have had the opportunity to meet (like you and Rachel.)
12/4/2009 8:19:26 PM - 000031826072
Hey Cougar Girl (Hehehe), just stopping in to say hello. I've been overwhelmed since returning from Jamaica, what with Christmas coming and all. We just managed to get our tree up last night and Shutterfly Christmas cards ordered yesterday. No shopping done what-so-ever.
I'm sorry to hear that you and the family have been ill - no fun at all. Hope everyone is all better by now. Glad the kids were able to enjoy some ice and hail (if not snow!) You sunny California people are so lucky. It is freezing here today and the wind chill is about -50 degrees (OK I'm exxaggerating, but you get my point.)
I must say, I am sure the lady in Wally World was right....you would look nothing but HOT in spandex....HeHeHe. Have a great weekend!
12/4/2009 1:15:23 AM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, How are you and your family doing? I hope all is well. I do want to thank you for the sweet comment on my parent's wedding photo. I am glad you liked it. And making a photo book of wedding photos of your family members both old & new is an excellent idea. Please do share once it is complete.

Stop by any time you are more than welcome to explore my sites. Have a great evening.
12/2/2009 11:36:22 PM - 000074469281
I like all the kids on Santa's lap!!

11/14/2009 4:09:58 PM - 000074469281
Hi Ann! I wanted to stop in quick and tell you Scott has the sign thing, I think. I forget now. I need to visit sites more often. That is so funny Tyler had his Christmas list ready by Oct 1st. At least he's a boy who knows what he wants. All the ads now, he may be changing his mind. Wow, Trinity does turn 3 just before Thanksgiving. BIG week coming up. Do you have a photo of the cake Randy made you? What kind is Trinity getting? I'm setting up my little tree today.
Have a beautiful day in California!! :)
11/13/2009 9:14:49 PM - 000074469281
Hope you had a super duper birthday Ann. I'm glad we 'met' through Shutterfly!!
I just read on Cynthia's site that you are almost done with Christmas shopping. Ugh. I wish I was. I have no idea what to get the kids and my siblings and I draw names.
This is such a busy time between now and New Years. I think i also read Trinity's birthday is the week of Thanksgiving. The big 3!!! Yippee. I think i'm going to make my niece a book for her 3rd bday in Dec. I need to eliminate photos.
Have a good weekend!
11/13/2009 2:07:20 AM - 001043414385

Your children are absolutely adorable. What cute little Halloween outfits they have. It looks like you all had a fabulous Halloween!
11/10/2009 3:32:41 AM - 001024320926
Ann, I saw your post about pictures and the photobook party. I wanted to tell you that every time I put my camera down Starla or Beverly picked it up!! They are responsible for a number of the pictures. Just saying it was nice to have a couple spare hands. I can totally see that if you didn't taking pictures would have taken the backseat :)
11/9/2009 12:53:44 AM - 000031826072
Hi Ann! Just popping in to say hello. I heard your Shutterfly party was a huge success - congrats! Fun, fun, fun! I love the kids Halloween costumes......too cute. They look like they are in the spirit - such great memories are being created every single day with them....seems like only yesterday when mine were that little! Congrats to Tyler on mastering two wheels - that's a big deal! Very cool.
11/7/2009 1:26:45 PM - 000078500249

11/1/2009 4:23:23 PM - 002066991916
Spooky.... Booooo
Oh my goodness! You are right we are nearly neighbors. I know that place. My husband and I went their last month in Sacramento State Fair and you may see my photos if you visit my site. Wow maybe we can meet sometimes in San-Francisco and take lots of photos. How is your Halloween's going? I am hoping that you have a scary time with your family and friends.
10/31/2009 2:23:39 PM - 001024320926
Ann you're rocking my world stopping by my site :) too fun to see you've been there!! I'm stopping by to wish you and the kiddos the most fun on Halloween!! Have a spooky great time!!
10/31/2009 5:31:04 AM - 001023411097
Hello dear Ann, happy halloween and have a great week-end. I love you site and we have lost some of the votes on my home page. Be sure to come by and check out the fall pages that on the fall challenge. bj
10/30/2009 5:59:24 PM - 000031826072
Ann - thanks for bopping on by...it always puts a smile on my face to hear from you. I love the Queen song, too (obviously..since I put it on my site!) Your Pumpkin Patch pics are awesome. Looks like the kids had a fabulous time! So cool. Happy Halloween!
10/30/2009 1:29:04 AM - 000074469281
Ann, you are too funny!!
Have a good night!!
10/29/2009 5:17:36 AM - 002066991916
Hi Ann- Thank you for the compliment about my flowers. I took most of those flowers but some of those are from my iphone and I just edited and crop it. By the way I signed to your guest book and I add my place (Walnut Creek CA) on your weather forcast so you will see the weather here in CA. I like your header photos those are so nice! Happy Halloween
10/29/2009 1:47:38 AM - 001024320926

Look at the fun, fun on here. Love the headers!! The kiddos look very happy and ready for the season :) They make the holidays pop!!! Thanks for stopping by today. I am just now getting out on the sites, too tired last night :)

The fall doesn't have the best effect on our area either but I find little gems here and there. I love this time of year. It makes me just smile from ear to ear :)

10/29/2009 12:47:36 AM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, How are things going? Just wanted to let you know i have added some photos from my recent cruise on my travel site. Please feel free to come on by and have a look. Love to read your comments too. Take care.
10/28/2009 3:10:41 PM - 000034909909
Hi!

The images of the kids are great, really capturing the moment, full of expressions! Good job.
Thanks for your comments on viewofthecamera.shutterfly.com
The Colorado (good ol' days) was sure fun, there is so much out there to photograph, one just has to find it. I love the finding it, like a giant puzzle. I would guess most people have some old buildings or junk yards near. Big surprise, junk yards are interesting places to shoot, the people there are happy to let you shoot there, just be really careful!!! can't stress that enough.
Joyce
10/27/2009 10:23:08 PM - 000074469281
Ann, hi again!!! I think thats a super idea to branch out and take photos of other kids besides your own. I did that to a couple of my friends kids - just gave me extra practice. My nieces and nephews were getting bored with me so i said Fine, I'm looking for other kids!!
I just saw you got your party pack!! Woo-hoo, so did I. I saw that one girl is going to get little red notebooks in case people need to make notes, and she also suggested red tissue paper. I was thinking of putting something else in them too. Great bags, huh? If you think of something, let me know....You got a guestmap!! Yeah!!
10/26/2009 3:32:21 PM - 000074469281
Ann, I so love all your fall pictures. Your kids are so adorable. I like the background choice and this site is very fall - very fun! Ours has been so damp this year. Hardly any sunny days - I put up some of the kids playing in leaves from last year.
And i love the Guess Who photos. I like how you have them displayed! Did u take those in the mirror? I am glad u posted your video on here. I just love it - you are such a pro!
So cute Alyssa coached Tyler on how to ride a bike w/o training wheels - Alysssa is a great sister!
Happy FALL!!

The book is adorable! Now that's some serious booty cake girl! LOL!!! Tyler was so excited! How cute! I miss those days so much! I just made a bunch of simple path books yesterday and on Monday and I didn't know they had this adorable little pages! It was perfect! That would have went so cute with the 1 simple path book I made of Mason from this July at Chuck E. Cheese and some photos I forgot about of him being silly! I'll have 2 keep that in mind! I'm getting the hang of the simple path books! LOL!!! They are so much fun and so fast! Well I mess around so much but it gets me going so I like that! I have soo many books I want to make! My list keeps growing! LOL!!!

You should post in on facebook!!! That is so precious! I wish we could post them to the gallery! Awesome book!!!! Tyler's a lucky boy! :)

Oops. I tried to add a few pics on your share page, as requested, and couldn't figure out how to get the album I added separate - it's under Cynthia's section. So sorry...maybe you can help me figure out how to move it?????? Sorry!
10/12/2009 7:02:19 PM - 000031826072
Hey Ann - Thanks for stopping by and for the comments on my San Antonio pictures. We had such a blast. Those pics of Trinity with the wig ARE a hoot. I can just imagine the bright red now that you shared that with me - absoloutely hysterical. Love, love, love those shots! I hope everything is great with you and the family this week. Have a good one and enjoy the Fall!

Your kids are so adorable. I enjoy coming here!
Hope you've been well.

Hi Ann, sorry it's taken me a little bit to stop by, I was getting my desk ready for leaving and then when I came back from New Mexico I have been playing catch up ever since.
I wanted to say thank you for your kind words concerning the passing of my Aunt Katherine, she was a wonderful person. This wonderful shutterfly family has been a blessing.
Thanks for the comments in my site too, it's o fun to have an outlet like the share sites and gallery. Your site is awesome and I love the pictures of your kiddos, especially the black and whites.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
10/6/2009 2:48:57 PM - 000064383827

Hi Ann, I'm still here! Shocked by the 'news'! Holy crap! I love Tyler's photo below and your headers are awesome, as always! Can your kids be any cuter?
I have been bad at visiting sites, I'll have to go see Carm's sunsets. Thanks for the comment on my walk. It is only 2 miles - but it was a huge accomplishment for me; especially knowing I couldn't make 1 lap without having to sit down several times. I'm gonna email u quick!
Oh love the new black to your site!
10/4/2009 10:07:31 PM - 001023411097

9/27/2009 9:20:53 PM - 001024320926

9/18/2009 10:58:24 PM - 001024320926
Hi Ann, loved the new book and the idea behind it. Very cool the way the saturation and stamped edges changed the perspective of the book. Love it!!
9/16/2009 5:55:11 AM - 002035648808
I enjoyed visiting your site. It is wonderful. You are a very creative photographer. My baby just started her first year of college. Enjoy these little ones because they grow up tooo fast!
9/15/2009 3:05:56 AM - 000074469281
Thank you so much for adding the pic of you & Rachel to my Sfly Friends page and the close-up of you! Love them. Thanks also for the comments on the sunsets. I went a little nuts with displaying them all over. Thats funny you were just at my site and i changed the headers. I wanted to leave the sunset ones up, but figured since I have the Simple Path book showcasing the sunsets, I'd change the headers. I can't wait to get the Simple Path book. Do u think one day we will be able to post them?
I'm slowly making changes to my site...
I gotta get to bed. Talk to u later and thx for adding pics! Made my night!!
9/14/2009 11:06:33 PM - 000074469281
I also like how you did Alyssa & Tylers first day of school photos above. Your babies are growing up!
9/14/2009 3:27:00 PM - 000074469281
Hi Ann, Thanks for your comment on my Sunset photos. They were so beautiful in person. I used the sunset mode on my camera, I found they looked better than in auto mode!! I can't wait for my Simple Path book on the Sunsets to arrive!
Thanks for your tips on the Simple Path books. It is so cool. Have you made one yet??
Haeve a good day/

I'm glad you posted your "magic Kingdom' photos from Shutterfly. Hey you should whip up one of those Simple Path books w/ those images! I still can't stop taking about it.
As i look at that photo of Trinity again, is that a wig?
9/11/2009 4:09:37 AM - 002020640084

Love your fun headers too. Great site!!

9/8/2009 7:55:06 PM - 000093706714
Hey Ann......I saw Toni's comment about your Big Hike book and hadn't seen it previously. Just checked it out and left you some comments.

Thanks for checking out the album I posted for Jonathan. Seriously long overdue but it felt good to 'get r done' and click the 'Submit button. (Which by the way, I did use the Guru 'cash' to do the volume discount plan...great savings!)

I posted another album (Promises Kept) in the gallery and I am going to start working on the project I got from Australia today / tomorrow. I have looked over the pics (very unique) so I am looking forward to getting started.

Started PT today. LOVE the therapist. Great guy and I think he will push me hard. I have just received news that I am probably going to have to go back into surgery for my knee. Not quite what I had been planning for...but I am going to use the time in PT to get strong again.

Ok...I am going to poke around a little and then get busy. I have truly felt some renewed creative energy lately - and it feels SO GOOD!

Can't wait to see the pics you mentioned in the Guru Gallery. Let me know when they are posted.

Hugs
Cheri

BY THE WAY, IS ALYSSA'S BOOK YOU SAID ON GG CENTRAL THAT YOU USED DIGI PAGES AND SOME SHUTTERFLY PAGES? IF SO, YOU TOTALLY PULLED IT OFF! I WANTED TO DO THAT TO START MY 1ST BOOK SO IT WOULD NOT SEEM SO OVERWHELMING BUT I WASN'T SURE HOW IT WOULD LOOK! IN THE GALLERY I HAVE ONLY SEEN PEOPLE USE ALL SHUTTERFLY AND THEN DO THE COVERS DIGI OR DO ALL SHUTTERFLY PAGES EXCEPT LIKE 2 DIGI PAGES! THIS IS THE 1ST COMBO I HAVE SEEN AND I LOVE IT! I AM SO INSPIRED TO WHIP OPEN MY NEW PHOTOSHOP 7 AND ALL THE DIGI FREEBIES I COLLECTED AND PLAY AROUND! I AM DOING THAT THIS WEEK! I HAVE TO WHIP UP A QUICK BOOK BECAUSE MY FRIEND JUST EMAILED ME A FREE 8X8 AND IT EXPIRES TOMORROW! THEN I WILL BE HEAD DEEP IN DIGI! LOL!!! I LEFT YOU SOME COMMENTS ON YOUR BOOK! CONGRATULATIONS!

I WANTED TO QUICKLY TELL YOU SOMETHING EXCITING! YOU KNOW HOW I LOVE YOUR 4X4 DISNEY BOOK AND SAID I WANTED TO MAKE ONE THAT SIZE WELL I NEVER GOT A CHANCE! WELL WHEN THEY SAID IT WASN'T AVAILABLE ANYMORE I WAS SO UPSET! AT THAT TIME, I QUICKLY THOUGHT OF AN IDEA! I WANTED TO SEE IF I WENT IN THE GALLERY AND SEARCH BY BOOK SIZE AND CLICKED 4X4 IF I DID THE MAKE ONE LIKE THIS IF IT WOULD WORK AND IT DID! I STARTED SOME BUT NOW SINCE YOU AND JOEY MENTIONED THIS I REALLY NEED TO GET WORKING ON THOSE SIZE! I KNOW IT CHANGED ABOUT A MONTH AGO SO I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER WE HAVE SO I FORGOT I STARTED THEM UNTIL YOU AND JOEY WERE DISCUSSING IN ON GG CENTRAL! I GUESS I SHOULD HAVE MENTIONED SOMETHING RIGHT AWAY! I GUESS IT SLIPPED MY MIND! I HOPE YOU CAN FIND A BUNCH YOU LIKE IN THE GALLERY AND CLICK THE MAKE ONE LIKE THIS TAB! ONCE YOU HAVE THAT SIZE TO WORK WITH IF YOU WANT TO MAKE CHANGES TO THE FORMAT YOU CAN! YOU CAN EVEN CLICK THAT BUTTON ON YOUR DISNEY ONE AND THEN CHANGE ANY PAGES YOU WANT! I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE THAT EXCITING NEWS WITH YOU! HAVE A HAPPY DAY! :)

I USE TO BE REALLY GOOD ABOUT AS SOON AS I TOOK PICTURES I TOOK THEM WEEKLY TO PUT THEM ON CD WHICH I THOUGHT WAS GREAT UNTIL RECENTLY I PUT SOME IN AND THE KODAK STICKER ON THE CD WAS RUBBING AND IT WAS NOT SHOWING THE PHOTOS! I WAS UPLOADING TO SHUTTERFLY AND TRIED TO DO MY ENTIRE COLLECTION IN MARCH AND APRIL AND IT WAS A HUGE PROJECT! ANYWAYS, ITS A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE BACKUP! HOPE YOU HAVE IT REAL SOON! :)

Ann, Your photo books on shutterfly are stunning. I love the teacher book.... but I would edit out the student's last names. As a parent I would not want my child's name and photo out there.
TY for all the beautiful work you share. I love your photos.

Hi Ann, I love the pictures you added to the Showcase page, great B&W's. I moved them to your slideshow, along with the comments they had already received!! Your B&W's are wonderful. I have another of the B&W's in that slideshow too, one you took at Disneyland I think. I really like it. Sometime when you have a moment just go back and add a picture of yourself to the top slideshow called Shutterpals and you can add as many pictures to your Courtesy of Abbott Family Site slideshow as you want. I love seeing them :)

Hey there....I can't wait to see your butterfly pictures! Don't keep me/us waiting too long! I kinda felt bad when I had 5-7 buzzing around my butterfly bush this eve. I thought of you and you not having one at home. I wanted to mail you one! Anyway, Can't wait to see it and see the book you are working on with (the mouse). LOL
8/4/2009 1:08:50 AM - 000074469281
How cool your book & photographs are featured in a Shutterfly promotion!! So COOL!
8/4/2009 1:05:44 AM - 000074469281
Welcome back Ann. Can't wait to see pictures. How are u doing??
8/3/2009 2:26:43 PM - 001063913611
You and your husband really know how to throw a party. What a cake! Wall-e is a real hoot and a half! Your hubby must be an architect or engineer judging by the platform, etc. Your kids are very lucky to have parents that will go to all of this work (fun) for their kids. The photos are incredible. Congrats on great photos, great parties, and great FUN!
8/3/2009 2:21:04 PM - 001063913611
Ann, just reading a few comments I assume that your aunt has passed so first let me say how sorry I am for your loss. My thoughts are with you .
8/2/2009 4:01:14 AM - 002020640084
ANN,
I JUST WANTED TO QUICKLY LET YOU KNOW I WAS THINKING OF YOU! TAKE CARE! :)
7/30/2009 3:56:32 AM - 000031826072
Hey Ann just stopping by to say hello and thank you for all your kind comments on my latest photobooks. Your new headers of the kids are fabulous. Fun, fun, fun. Those big smiles are so contagious! Hope you are taking care of yourself and having a good week.
7/26/2009 6:19:27 PM - 001099993350

I read what you wrote on the threads of the message board and wanted to say I hope you do get to uncover some buried photography teasures, it would be a great honor to your Aunt knowing you'll do something wonderful with them :)

Ann, It's always fun to stop by and see the latest with your family. Congratulations Tyler, on losing your first tooth! Avery is heading into 2nd grade this fall and we've been waiting since his first tooth got wiggly in April. It's still hanging on... Ann, your site looks amazing as always. Keep in touch.
6/23/2009 1:46:56 AM - 001018611425
wonderful photos, Anne! For a second I thought you had made the background black & white for the tide pool shots because there is so much contrast between the kids bright clothes and the foggy setting.... really neat. I think you must really have a GREAT camera! ;)
6/22/2009 3:38:55 AM - 001038348079
Thanks so much for stopping by the other day and for commenting on my book. Wow, I know what you mean about staying busy with the kids...Sure have to keep them entertained! My Alyssa tries to get me off her back by saying "It's ok Mommy, go take pictures of your flowers" which means..."leave me alone so I can do what I want" hahahaha...Just know if I don't visit much i'm super busy with them and wore out by the time they go to bed!
6/20/2009 6:23:34 AM - 002066991916
WOW! Finally I see and enjoying to view your site! I really like Tyler photos. She is so pretty! It looks that you have a wonderful family. Keep up the good work you have many photos too that you need to explore. Way to go!!!
6/19/2009 7:18:45 PM - 000093706714
Congratulations Tyler! The Luau looked like tons of fun! The shots of Arcata are beautiful and the kids looked like they enjoyed themselves exploring. I see little Trinity sitting in the sand in the background....adorable! Alyssa looks like such a big girl now.....it goes sooooo fast. Sending you good wishes for a fun filled summer!
6/19/2009 3:57:17 AM - 000074469281
Hi Ann, I love the foggy pics on GGC they are incredible. Thats funny my Owl spooked you - I have a few neighbors walk by and do double takes - his head wobbles in the wind. The guy at the store said these are very popular - to keep birds from pooping all over everything and by golly it has worked!! I have to move him every few days or the birds will catch on its not real! Isn't that crazy?? Have a great weekend. Seems summers are so busy.
Talk to u next week. Going to the lakes again and hoping for decent weather!!
Tata... Joey
6/18/2009 5:24:28 PM - 002073432243

6/17/2009 4:54:01 AM - 002055694880
Hi Ann. Hope all is well with you. Beautiful new headers and starfish! How great is that. I bet that was real neat. Gonna look around a bit. Just wanted you to know I was here.
6/16/2009 1:57:04 AM - 000074469281

6/16/2009 1:55:37 AM - 000074469281

Hey Ann. Nice new changes to your site. Looks great!! I loved your new book! Such a pro you are becoming. Thanks for the comments on my site. I got the idea to compact my recent pictures by seeing it on one of Tiffany's sites. I have been bad at making my rounds again.
Have a great weekend. We are going to lakes. Hope its nice.

Hi Ann, thank you for adding me as a member to your sharesite. It is an honor to have such a opportunity through shutterfly to share and creating the things we love and share with others. I need to look around. Barb
6/9/2009 12:22:49 PM - 000093706714
Hi Ann........LOVE seeing you in more of the family shots. You and Trinity look very cute together! Sounds like the trip back to Arcata was fun for all.

I had planned to be telling you about the surprise trip I was booking for Rene and I to San Diego, but this past weekend I broke my leg playing softball. Mega ouch! I am having surgery on Thursday and am trying to remain optimistic that we can still get in some fun activities over the summer. I am currently planning cute designs for the cast! hehehehehe
One bummer is that I had to cancel several photo sessions booked for the next few weeks.....I have one still pending that we may attempt depending on my ability to learn how to get around with crutches and one leg! hehehehe

Sending good wishes to you and your family..........
Cheri
6/7/2009 3:03:30 AM - 001023411097
Hi Ann, I just wanted to drop by and visit. I hope you and your family are doing great and had of course a good Memorial Day. We are still enjoying rather cool mornings here in South Texas. I want to look around take in all the photos and comments. bj
6/6/2009 9:42:01 PM - 001024320926
Thanks Ann for the comments on my books :) You are too kind!! They were fun to put together and I love taking pictures of Kyleigh so I always have plenty of pictures :) Love the headers, especially the starfish :) and the fact that you're up there too!! Very cool.
6/5/2009 3:54:41 PM - 002055694880
Hi Ann. Popping in with a quick question. We mothers have to stick together on this. We are kind of in the same boat. Our children are the same ages. Regan has been potty trained since she was about 17 months old. She still wears a diaper at nite. K'Lee never did. She just got up in the middle of the night. So do you have this problem or have any suggestions at this time of how to get this to happen with ease?!?
Have a wonderful weekend.
6/4/2009 1:25:31 PM - 002055694880
Hello Ann. Just poppin in to see what's new! The new thing with me is my book I'm going to miss this.....is FEATURED!! I am so excited and I wanted to tell you thank you for all your lovely comments. 8 year olds are soooo fun!
6/3/2009 2:42:51 PM - 000074469281
Hey Ann, just wanted to thank you for your very kind comment on my neighbors book. I appreciate it much!! Have a super day! Love your new profile pic on FB!
6/2/2009 11:16:44 PM - 001086419651
Hello Abbot Family! I see JoeyT had the same idea :) I am just going around trying to catch up with everyone! Hope all is well... BTW... what did Tyler get from the tooth fairy?? :)
6/2/2009 10:28:01 PM - 000074469281
Hi Ann. Just popping in to say hiiiiii! Hope you are all well. When is school out? Thanks for visiting my site and adding a flower to my Shutterfly Friends page. Beautiful flower! I'll have to tell my brother that you thought he looked like he was getting to sing in the Opera in that bathrobe photo. I keep meaning to change it, but it cracks me up! Have a great evening - i guess its only 3:30 in your neck of the woods. Talk to u soon.
6/2/2009 12:44:30 AM - 002055694880
Thanks so much for coming to my site. K'Lee is about 8 and a half going on 15 and needs an attitude adjustment but is super smart. Regan turned two in january and man she is such a character. I think that our children make us who we are. Watching them grow goes by so quickly. Again you have a beautiful family.
6/2/2009 12:44:29 AM - 002055694880

YOu have a cute daughter and it looks like she is growing fast. Tyler loosing a tooth is too cute..Great face :) I think that I am going to do some more looking around. Thanks for sharing.

I love the headers of Alyssa - Miss Superstar! I wanted to thank you for your very kind comment on my last book. It was so nice to read what you wrote this morning. Made my day and thank you again for the instructions....it's not perfect but worked out better than I thought.
Have a great day.
5/27/2009 7:03:21 PM - 000031826072
Wow - Alyssa is a little star! How cool is that? And I love the tooth picture of Tyler - classic! Very cool that you met your honey on the same weekend I got married! Hope you had a fabulous "Memorial Day/Meeting Anniversary Weekend." Take care and my congrats to Ms. Superstar!
5/26/2009 8:38:42 PM - 001076975951
Great new pictures Ann. Love the one where Tyler is showing his missing tooth. Great snapshot. I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. And glad to hear the show was a success.
5/26/2009 8:24:20 PM - 001024320926
Wonderful pictures of Alyssa and Congratulations to her!! You must be very proud :)
5/26/2009 5:25:06 PM - 002035364597
Love the HONKjr! images! How fun is that. Alyssa looks so comfortable and confident up there on stage. What a natural. Congratulations to all of you on a successful show :)
5/26/2009 4:53:59 PM - 001086419651
Hello Ann and thank you for your kind words regarding my Legacy book for my parents. Feel free to stop by my site (http://lifeshared.shutterfly.com) anytime. I am always interested in meeting new friends and learning from them :)
5/26/2009 4:20:43 PM - 002070893911
wow! She is getting so big!! great pictures!
5/26/2009 2:24:17 AM - 001018611425
Alyssa looks like a natural on stage! You must be so proud! Photos are great, as usual. :) Thanks for keeping us updated.
5/26/2009 1:09:23 AM - 000074469281
Oh my gosh Ann, what a proud parent moment. I wish they had sound on sharesites so we could hear Alyssa's performance. It looks like she did an INCREDIBLE job. Way to go Alyssa - on her way to being a star. I like the slideshow and film-strip. Cute photo of Tyler's first lost tooth and Trinity's Grin. You and Randy have done a grand job raising your three amazing kids! Love the photos!!
5/23/2009 12:00:46 AM - 001023411097
Hi Ann, I love looking at your Disneyland photos. I want to wish you and your family a Great Memorial Day weekend. Take plenty of photos. I want to look around and I have my kids from Houston coming here for the weekend. They will be out on the lake. I'm cooking now so I will talk later. bj
5/20/2009 4:06:57 AM - 000074469281
Forgot to ask, is your cute Disneyland book in Gallery?? I looked for it and couldn't find. ;(
5/20/2009 4:00:39 AM - 000074469281
Hi there Ann!! Good to hear from you. Idol was pretty exciting. I just don't know who will win. I was a bit surprised Shawn won Dancing - not sure if you watch that. She is good, was just surprised. Don't worry about not being able to visit sharesites - it is tough keeping up. Plus with school coming to an end, Alyssa's program, and a two year old who is into everything. My niece Madeline is the same way. Plus summers get so busy. I really need a laptop - i can't believe sweet Trinity smashed yours. Why is it kids like to pound on the keys! By the way, you should brag about Alyssa's performance. Very emotional i'm sure - can't wait to see more pics.
Later girl - i need to get to bed. i'm so tired.
Joey :)

Hi Ann Just stopping by to see what's new here and to say Hello. Ann I have some new pictures if you have time to stop by my Gallery site. They are on the Recent Photo page. How is the family? Any special plans for Memorial Day this year? Whatever you do may it be filled with fun and special memories for your and your family. take care.
5/18/2009 6:33:01 PM - 002069955263
I really love your site. Keep up the good work this will be something your family can remember and treasure forever.
5/16/2009 7:33:00 PM - 001054671662
Ann...thanks for the kinds words re: Stephanie & Mike's wedding. You mentioned how each page was constructed so perfectly. I feel like Ann Aspnes takes the credit for that. It's as if she designed those pages especially for me! S & M's book comes closest to what I've been trying to do for the past several years...making a book that 'marries' wedding album & scrapbook. I think this is the direction I will take from now on. Also, re: timeline...that was an idea one of the brides suggested and I have featured it in every book I've designed ever since. BTW...I work at Disneyland, when I'm not shooting weddings, as one of their Photo Pass Photographers.
5/13/2009 8:40:13 PM - 000074469281
Had to come to your site and check out the fonts. I think yours look great. Your whole site is really great - each page draws a person to look at the whole page. I think I need to do some adjusting on mine.
5/12/2009 7:59:37 PM - 001076975951
You have some really wonderful photos on this site and the new school play slideshow is a wonderful addition to the home page. Be well and take care.
5/9/2009 1:42:32 PM - 000093706714
CONGRATULATIONS ALYSSA! You are going to do GREAT! Love the head shot of Alyssa in the egg Ann........too fun!
5/8/2009 10:23:57 PM - 000033709100
You are one talented family, Ann! Love the new pics of Disney and HONKjr. So fun!

Hi Ann, Just want to stop in and wish you a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY. Hope you have a wonderful weekend with fun and precious moments. What's been happening with you and yours. Keeping busy with the upcoming play? I'm sure you'll have some photos to share with us. Take care and God bless.
5/8/2009 2:56:20 PM - 000074469281
Hey Ann, I know what you mean, it is hard to keep up on the Share Sites. I find a lot of the new sharesites through Lisa's site - she's the social butterfly. Some I have found when they have their site address on their profile. She has a TON! Kind of fascinating - I haven't even seen half. Anyway, have a great Mother's Day. hugs, Joey
5/7/2009 2:01:47 PM - 001023411097
Ann, just dropping by to enjoy your family photos. I love your new book. Cany wait to see pictures of Alyssa in HONK! Enjoy every minute of your little one. I did and now mine are 34 and 36 wow! Now I enjoy my grandbabies. I like the night lights. I have not taken any for a while. Finally got through with my rose book. A Rose Can Say on my site. Have a great day and I want to look around. BJ
5/6/2009 8:41:59 PM - 000093706714
Love the shot of Trinity with the Disney hat..............WAY TOO CUTE! Looking forward to seeing the album. I have lots to work on myself...but the sun is starting to shine (finally) in Michigan. Can't resist being outside! Hope you are all doing well.......Hugs! Cheri
5/6/2009 4:54:58 PM - 000064383827
LOVE the the MICKEY HAT header. That is way to cute and her smile is precious! You got to see the Blue Fairy. We haven't meet that one yet. It's been a really crazy 2 weeks so as a last minute no time to prepare trip my husband booked us at Disney World for the weekend. WOSH!! I have no time to plan. We are leaving in tomorrow at 1130 and will be back on Monday. A quick trip and only T-Shirts my husband said. No time to match outfits. I hope that you have a wonderful Mother's Day. I can't wait to see more of your Disneyland TRIP!!
Thank you for your kind comments on my mother in law's book. She is precious and I can't wait to give it to her next week.
5/5/2009 4:20:40 PM - 001076975951
Ann, I want to thank you for the kind comments on my Christmas/Winter holiday photo book. I'm glad you looked at it and that you liked viewing it too. I hope you are well as is you family. You have a place here that is enjoyable. I'll be back soon. It is always nice exploring and find something new.
5/4/2009 11:20:37 PM - 000074469281

Hi Ann, Glad that you all had a wonderful time in Disneyland. I'm sure even the adults had a great time. I've never been to Disneyland, maybe someday. I look forward to see all the photos you post and your book once it is finished. Ann, let me know when you have some new photos loaded on your site, I'd love to see them. Take care and catch you later.
By the way Great header photos.
4/25/2009 11:40:56 PM - 000074469281

4/24/2009 6:01:33 PM - 001038348079
Thanks for dropping by a bit ago...Thanks for the comment on the bird pictures (luck right now and patience) haha...Oh, and lots of bird feeders..haha...I have learned the past few days also that birds don't like kids yelling "MOM, MOM, What are you doing??" and they don't like cats sitting on my lap either. haha...Your flower pictures are so so pretty!! Can't wait for the next batch of mine to bloom. I'm sure you are waiting on yours also!! I need to come back when I have more time and look at the Disney photos...(or i'm sure the book will be out real soon also) hee hee...LOL

Hey Ann, Love the flower above and below!! Looking forward to your Disney book!! Thanks for the kind comments on 2 of my latest books. They help distract me and are fun to do. I know, I can't believe how big the kids are getting! My 13 year old nephew is super tall. He got his hair-cut this weekend before the funeral and looks soooooo much better!! We could barely see his eyes before, I kept moving his bangs out of his eyes when I was trying to take his photos. I got Abby's little book this weekend and she loved it. Anyway, take care and see you around.
4/21/2009 12:47:39 PM - 000064383827
Ann,

Hi Ann, Hope your trip is safe and more fun than you can handle. I know you'll be taking some pictures with that new camera and we can't wait to see them. Not sure when you leave but I wish you an excellent trip!!
Have a wonderful day, Lisa :)
4/5/2009 3:20:42 PM - 001076975951
Just wanted to stop by and see how you are doing? Hope all is well. Everytime I visit your site I love to look at the Spring Is Here photo of the flower. Just beautiful. Those slides at Roseville look like lots of fun. I would love to be a kid again and do that. Have a great Sunday and hope to see you around. Take care.
4/3/2009 10:42:12 PM - 000074469281
Just wanted to drop in and say hi. Hope all is going well on your end. Are you going on vacation soon too? Disneyland??? Take care.

Your kiddos would love San Diego, there is so much to do and see, very family friendly. I just can't say enough good things about it :)
Love the tulip :) Lisa
3/30/2009 6:11:45 PM - 001024320926
Hi Ann, I was in San Diego this past weekend and wondered if that was near you? It was so amazing there, so beautiful and with so much to see and so. I was truly in love with the place after about 30 seconds :)
Hope the viruses have ran their course and everyone is well.
Lisa
3/28/2009 6:46:28 AM - 000031826072
Thanks for stopping by, Ann. I'm sorry to hear that the cooties have been making the rounds at your house, like at mine. No fun! I'm finally feeling better and hope that your crew is, too. We miss you so get everyone better! I posted a new book (My Bucket List.) Here's wishing you a fab weekend!
3/28/2009 5:31:19 AM - 000093706714
May the cooties be scooting soon from your world! Hang in there...SPRING IS COMING!
I know if for sure.......I SEE tulips blooming right before my eyes! hehehehe

Take care of you.....and give LOTS of mommy hugs! No better medicine.

Cheri
3/26/2009 10:27:18 PM - 000074469281
Hi Ann, sorry its been awhile. I'm bad at making the rounds as of late. I must say your tulip above put a smile on my face and warmed my heart. It's been a tough/scary week. Hope your kids are all better. I like Alyssa's Back in Time day. Looks like Little House On The Prairie! Great thing to teach students about how things were in the 1800's!
3/24/2009 8:03:03 PM - 000064383827
Ann,
Thanks for the comment on my sight! I am the official Photo Nut! Busy busy busy with photo's of course and getting back into the swing of things. I'm so excited for your trip to Disneyland. Maybe one day I'll head out that direction. You'll definitely have to share your photo's when you get back. Congratulations on your good news. Stress free is so much better! Keep watching as I load photo's up at night and then add them to my sharesite during the day. It was a wonderful trip! I can wait to go back in 176 days...but who's counting. Have a great day!
3/24/2009 2:34:19 PM - 001076975951
Hi Ann, Just took a look at your Opera Page. Very nice. I've been to the opera at the MET {Lincoln Center} and really enjoyed myself. So those photos are really nice. Thanks for sharing. I hope your family is well and now that spring is here we can expect better weather and days outside. Take care.
3/24/2009 4:24:57 AM - 001043414385
Hey Ann, hope you are doing well, things are getting more and more exciting with me, so so busy right now, feel like I have not been able to do anything but baseball, check email, and go to bed and PLAN a baby shower, shewwww! Maybe I will get caught up soon, just love the header pics!
3/24/2009 2:28:48 AM - 001024320926

Have a good night :) Lisa
3/23/2009 12:51:49 PM - 001061427203
OMG...that slide looks awesome, we used to have something here similiar but they actaully game you these "sleds" to ride down on. Unfortantly due to the insurance cost they shut it down. Word is they may try to get it up and running again. After seeing your pics i really hope they do, it is sooooooo much fun. Thanks for the flash back.

Love the photo of Alyssa in the top right of the header.......her expression is beautiful. And that Trinity.....well she always cracks me up. Can't wait to see Alyssa's digi-scrap album.

Hey Ann- Congrats on being featured in the Shutterfly blogs and your self-portrait photobook feature.  Way to go! I love the first of the year B & W's - fabulous, as always.  Your photography skills continually amaze me - so inspiring.  Love the Valentine's Day headers of the kids....perfecto! Sounds like you are finally headed for some better weather out there in CA...good news!  Have a great week and talk to you soon here and on FB!

2/15/2009 3:32:16 AM - 000074469281

Hi Ann,

trying to do the site hopping. i have been bad at that lately. Is everyone ok in your home? Seems everyone on the sites has been sick, i have just had bad headaches - so trying to limit comp time; which is hard. You should post your ME2 book! take care, joey

2/14/2009 3:56:58 PM - 001076975951
Hi Ann,  Your site is wonderful and love the header.  How are you and your family doing?  Just wanted to stop by and say "HELLO" and happy Valentine's day.

Enjoy your weekend.

By the way LOVED your scrapbooking project Awesome!!
2/11/2009 7:22:49 PM - 000031826072
Hey Ann - I've not been share site hopping much myself lately, but it was good to see you pop up on mine to say hello.  Refi...scary stuff!  Hope it's all over soon! I love your new Me Book - very artsy and cosmopolitan and the new profile pic with the hair blowing over your face is awesome.
2/11/2009 7:02:08 PM - 001024320926
Thanks Ann for the heads up on the feature :) what fun :) You, Kelli, Julie and Joey were the first people in shutterfly to inspire and encourage thru your comments on my books and the site. I can't thank you enough :) Lisa :)

Hi Ann, Just stopping by to see what's new. Your photo book is so cute and creative...Very neat

shannon

2/10/2009 7:29:43 PM - 000074469281

Ann, don't be embarassed by your ME book. It is very creative and artsy. Who would think one would get so many awesome picture by taking them alone?  It would be a great gift for hubby. Maybe put one words at the bottom of how he makes you feel. Like secure, loved, happy, joyful etc. It would be a hit. Or words that inspire you, like you are my inspiration, my soulmate, my lover, you believe in me. I love YOU! etc.

2/10/2009 1:43:37 AM - 000074469281
I forgot to say that I got the idea to take a picture of my books by viewing someone's book in the Gallery. She had her picture of a couple of her books on the cover and it looked really cool - so I thought I'd try. I wanted more of an artistic angle, but it wasn't working like i planned. Oh well. Still kind of fun.
2/9/2009 11:20:59 PM - 000074469281

Hey Ann! You are so funny, I was just making changes to my site and saw you left a message. We seem to be on each others trail on Gallery or Sharesites or FB. I have been bad about visiting sharesites. I need to do that. I just saw you did a ME book. I'm so excited to view it. You go girl!!! See u around! Joey :)

2/9/2009 2:18:57 AM - 001088456594

Hi Ann,

I really like the new features and photos on your site. Thanks for keeping me posted.

1/31/2009 4:55:42 PM - 001066325224
Ann, I 'm just checking out all of the new additions to your site.  Love the header photos, looks like fun!  Thanks for stopping by the Terrapin Times.  We had a wonderful time in Disney and I'm sure your kids are looking forward to their trip to Disneyland as well.  Love all of the updates!!! ~ Diana
1/30/2009 1:10:31 AM - 001024320926

Hi Ann, wanted to say thanks for the comment on the 4x4 I made. It was really quick and I can see me making more of these for gifts, especially for kids. Like I said on the FB I love your new profile picture, very cool.

Thanks, Lisa :)

1/28/2009 8:02:41 PM - 001061427203

Glad you enjoyed the music. I actually say it on a couple other sites (Joanne & Connie) and thought...hmmm thats pretty cool. I even go to my page while I at work just to listen to the music. When mine is done i head on over to Connies page and listen to hers...LOL! Anyways if you go to Playlist.com you can create your own music player. You just need to add it into a widget when you are done. If you need more just let me know.

Shannon

1/27/2009 11:55:52 PM - 000074469281
Oh my gosh, I just saw your comment on my site and FB. You are too funny. This is something I have done, except I always get the double chins when i hold the camera out - I do better at self-timers then you can set it to take so many at a time. But I have never gotten ones like u did. I may have to try sometime. Did you whip you head around fast to get your hair in front of eyes?  So creative. You should do a book - The many faces of ME! And yes, it is FREEZING here. I left my oven on after lunch just to warm my place up a little more. I can't even believe I went out today. Too cold! It's been a long winter. Tomorrow is supposed to be 19 above, it was 19 below when I got up this morning. Insane! I'm sure 40 is a shock to you guys too. When does it start to be in the 70's? Oh well, this cold weather does suck but i guess it could be worse! Keep snapping photos!!
1/27/2009 2:25:07 AM - 000074469281
Hey Ann, I just saw your new profile picture. Its so dramatic and hot! I love the way it was done - did you take it? I love it!
1/26/2009 11:36:42 PM - 000074469281
Hey Ann, your header is so priceless and FUN - i like how you changed things up although i miss Christmas photos - they are hard to change. I also like the profile pic to your sharesite. Such a good photo of your 3 cherubs!! That is soo cool Tanya sent you a message! Great job on spreading the word. Are you still getting kicked off of Gallery? Try restarting if it is still happening. Computers can be such a pain.
1/26/2009 7:08:37 PM - 001061427203

looks like the kids had a great time at the zoo; the header pretty much says it all...very cute. I must comment on your facebook picture, it is a very stunning pictures, I really liked how it was shot. I couldn't see it very large as i only got the thumb print view, but i really liked the shot.

Shannon

1/26/2009 6:58:02 PM - 001024320926
Hi Ann, I love the new header pictures!! I'll be checking out your photobook in a minute too. I'm working on two photobooks right now, they're a little harder than my previous so it's taking some time. Hope all is well.  Lisa :)
1/26/2009 1:57:21 PM - 000049760729

Hi Ann!

Thanks so much for alerting me of the Share the love blog!  I never knew these blogs existed. By the way, I love, love your sharesite! 

Thanks,

Tanya

1/23/2009 4:12:22 AM - 000064383827

Ann,

  Just saw you comment on my sharesite.  Your kids are TOO cute!! I love the headers.  They are going to LOVE Disneyland!  Your going to have such a great time as they are at such a FUN age.  The website you can click here about the photopass.  I'm very familiar with Disney World but know basically nothing about Disneyland.  The photo CD looks like $79.95 for Disneyland which is great because Disney World is $125.00 unless you do the prepay and then it's still $100.00.  ttp://www.mousesavers.com/otherdl.html#photopass

You get all your photo's plus any borders you add.(you add the borders after you get back once you load your photopass number onto the Disney Photopass website)  I have 1637 photos on 4 CDs from our Adult Only trip.  I'm crazy I put multiply borders on every picture because I never know which one I will want to use in the book and once you order the CD you can't go back and add them later. 

I can't wait to see the pictures and your book from your trip in April.  I had to get our adult trip book finished so I could start another one when we return in March.  If you have any more questions just let me know.

 

P.S.  You commented on my Toy Story Mania Digi page.  Believe it or not the background and the patch on the left side page is from the back of one of the cast members.  I asked her to turn around so I could take a picture of your uniform.  I used PSE to cut it out and then the eyedropper to color match the stripes to mirror the stripes on their shirts. 

Cynthia

1/20/2009 1:16:17 AM - 001061427203

ANN, Thanks for stopping by. I have been using templates so far, but i have been make many many alterations to those templates. It just gives me a starting point and I can then delete and and different things. I have purchased scrapbook factory software and this is what I have been using.

shannon

1/19/2009 1:41:51 PM - 001061427203

Hi Anne, just stopping by to say hello and Happy 2009. Looks like your family in well on their way to making some good 2009 memories....Disney sounds great lets go! I have been busy working on a new book using digital scrapbooking. I have posted the book to my site under the scrapbook tab to see what others think so far; i have completed the cover/back and a few pages so far.

Take care and have a great week

Shannon

1/18/2009 8:26:49 PM - 001024320926
Hi Ann, I want to go to Disneyland, take me, take me!! Love your pictures. Lisa :)

Such a great site..your pictures are great of the kids and i love the digital scrapbook of Trinity!  I have been slowly dabbling in the photography skills but not nealy as good as you!
1/15/2009 5:05:40 AM - 000031826072
Hey Ann - Would you tell Cheri to just GET A SHARE SITE ALREADY!!!!!  She can only resist for so long....right?
1/14/2009 2:32:11 PM - 000074469281
Hey Ann, yes I'm still around I have been visiting books with little comments. I really really need to take the time and visit everyones sites. You have a beautiful smile. It's nice to see in your photos!!
1/13/2009 11:22:45 PM - 001024320926

Hi Ann I was out exercising my fingers and thought I'd drop by. Hope all is well. Have a great week :)

Lisa :)

1/9/2009 5:41:47 PM - 001024320926

Hi Ann, I noticed on Julie's site you said you took a picture just like hers, I wanted to see. I was right....it looks great! Your pictures always do. Have a nice day.

Snaps away, Lisa :)

1/8/2009 4:50:10 PM - 000093706714

Hi Ann

Love your share site....I haven't gotten around to dabbling in this arena yet but you and Julie have both inspired me.  I love all of your family shots....and seeing YOU in some of the images!

 

Does it take you much time to maintain your site?  Our family is spread all over and I do think this would be a fun way to stay in touch.  mmmmmmmmmm....still thinking about it...........

 

In the meantime, here is my email:

Hi Ann, Love your header. It is hard to take down the Christmas pictures - how about making a Christmas/holiday page?? It took me forever to figure out how to change the profile photo to our sites. Yours is so cute. I like seeing more photos of you too! See you around. Joey :) Keep up the great work.
1/7/2009 6:25:19 PM - 000031826072
I've noticed that you don't have you much on your site, so I thought it was awesome to see you up there for a change!!!!!
1/7/2009 1:58:11 AM - 000031826072
It's hard to get rid of the Christmas stuff....I hate to see it go, but you're right...what a great opportunity to force more picture taking!!!!  Love the new headers with you and the kids (does remind me of someones I know....fabulous idea!)  lol
1/6/2009 3:41:42 PM - 001024320926

Hi Ann, I love all your Christmas pictures, so festive and fun. I'm already missing the holidays. Hope the new year is being good to you. Have a great day.

Snaps Away, Lisa :)

1/3/2009 12:44:06 AM - 000074469281
Hi Ann! Thanks for the comment on my Christmas book - you are so kind and so on top of things. I think it's funny how we seem to be on top of each other in the Gallery and or Blogs. I was commenting on Henry's article and just as I pressed submit, you beat me with yours! Too funny! Thanks for the compliment on my sweater. I think you mean the one at the beginning of the book? I have had it for years - it is so warm! I love your site profile picture. You have a beautiful family. All my best in 2009.
1/1/2009 10:21:20 PM - 001066325224

Happy New Year, Ann!  It looks like your family had a great Christmas, we did as well.  We have had family visiting since Dec 23 and I haven't had much computer time.  Your site looks great as always.  So much fun!  Best Wishes in 2009!

Diana

Hey Ann, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family!! I'm making my rounds visiting sites - seems I have neglected some. Your Christmas photos look wonderful - what great memories. Seems like everyone got a Wii. My nephew and niece got one too. They are so much fun. Have a great year in 2009 - looking forward to more of your projects. Glad we got to know each other a little through the Shutterfly world!!
12/31/2008 6:12:52 PM - 000031826072
Hi Ann - Just another quick stop to wish you a Happy New Year!  Keep on having fun with the wii!
12/31/2008 1:35:35 PM - 001061427203

Ann, thank you for commenting on my photobook, they are so much fun to do. I have dove head first into this digital scrapbooking stuff, I have added a page to my site to show off a few pages as i go and ask for help, there is so much you can do with the scrapbooking. Have a great new years

Shannon

12/30/2008 5:26:14 PM - 001076975951
Greetings Ann,  Love what you have done with your site.  The photos are beautiful!!!  Hope you had a Merry Christmas.  Hope that all is well with you and your family.

Just wanted to stop by to say "HAPPY NEW YEAR"!  May it be filled with days of joy and peace.  Love, laughter and cherish moments.  Good health and prosperity.

Hey Ann,

  Got you message how fun to sit in PJs all day for Christmas.  We did about the same thing.  If felt good to be totally lazy and relaxed for the day.  I know what you mean about getting the itch for Disney.  We have 260 days to go...ugh!  If you need help with any planning let me know.   I loaded the photos from our Portrait Session at the Grand Floridian and also from EPCOT.  You'll notice duplicate photos but with different backgrounds.  I wanted to load a few different onces so when I'm putting my book together I have some options.  Hope you have a great NEW YEAR!! 

Cynthia

12/30/2008 5:44:38 AM - 000031826072
Your Christmas day sounds fun - I love the "stay in your pj's and play wii all day" - how cool is that?  Jarrett bought a Xbox with his Christmas cash this year and so we've been playing lots of Nascar racing and Mario.  I tried to talk him into getting a wii so i could play Guitar Hero, but no luck - he wanted the Xbox instead. It has been so great getting to know you through Shutterfly this year. I hope you and yours have a Happy New Year.  -Julie
12/29/2008 4:51:45 PM - 001024320926

Hi Ann, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you I've been getting over a recent surgery. I'm doing well and trying to get back into the swing of things.

Love your pictures, the kiddos look like they're having a wonderful Christmas. We had a good Christmas as well, lots of pictures to post but my computer is acting up and I'll have to wait til I get that resolved to post.

Can hardly believe a new year is upon us, it's amazing how fast time flys. I'll be back again to wish everyone a happy new year.

Until then,

Snaps away,

Lisa :)

12/28/2008 9:21:45 PM - 000082378991
Hi Ann! Just checking in! Love all the holiday pics! Looks like you guys had a grand holiday! Peace to you and yours in the new year!
12/26/2008 5:26:01 PM - 000093706714

Ann:

Just a quick note to tell you how much I have enjoyed sharing our mutual hobbies in the Shutterfly community.  Your encouragement and warmth comes thru in all of your postings and it is fun 'getting to know your family' thru your albums. 

 

I look forward to learning and sharing more in the new year.  In the meantime, I am sending you and your family good wishes for a joyous holiday season.  

 

Warm Regards,

Cheri

BTW...Your site looks fabulous!  (I have yet to give this a whirl but may try in the next few weeks.  May have to come to you for pointers.)

12/24/2008 2:54:50 PM - 000064383827

Ann,

It's just a busy time of year and you have been busy I see.  I love the Gingerbread making photos.  Tyler looks so thrilled...ha-ha.  Too cute.  Just wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas.  I hope your home is filled with family, love, and happiness.  

Love Cynthia

12/24/2008 4:31:44 AM - 000031826072
Just popping in one last time before the last minute Christmas craziness to wish you a Merry, Merry Christmas and the very best for you and your beautiful family in '09.  It's always a pleasure to see your face pop up on my site and/or in the comments for my photobooks. Have a great holiday...Ho Ho Ho...Blessings, Julie
12/23/2008 4:47:22 PM - 001061427203

Ann, just breezing throught before the holidays. I love you header pics, your children look like they are really enjoying the holidays. Have a great Christmas.

12/21/2008 10:58:42 PM - 000074469281
Love your Holiday page. How fun Santa came to your neighborhood. What a fun thing for kids to actually see Santa! I think it's too cold in my neck of the woods!! Poor Santa. Can't wait to see your holiday photos. Best wishes. Joey
12/21/2008 7:08:59 PM - 000033709100

Hi Ann,

Beautiful holiday images! I can't believe the end of December is approaching. How did that heppen?

12/17/2008 6:00:57 PM - 000031826072
Hey Ann - sounds like you are in high gear with all that is going on for you right now.  I bet the kids are excited about Grandma coming.  I thought our weather here was really bad, too, until Joey blew us all away with her big blizzard and -6 degrees currently.  Whoa.  Anyway, popping in to say Merry Christmas to you and yours!  - Julie
12/16/2008 6:07:54 PM - 001024320926

Hi Ann, just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Thanks for all the comments throughout this year.

Merry Christmas,

Lisa :)

12/13/2008 4:01:18 PM - 000074469281
Me again. I had to laugh when I saw your comment on Kelli's site about your weather. I realize 40 is freezing for you guys but its 19 here and freezing. We are expecting a blizzard tomorrow/tonight and expecting 7-8 inches of snow. Your 'cold' weather doesn't last that long does it? Ours lasts until April sometimes. It is pretty for the first month but gets old FAST!! See you around and stay warm and cozy!
12/13/2008 3:48:44 PM - 000074469281
Hi Ann, I'm trying to make my rounds visiting sites. I love your holiday header. Your kids are so darn cute and I bet they  are so excited for Christmas. I hope to stop back soon but you know how it is with this busy time quickly approaching. I can't even believe it. The gingerbread houses are DARLING. Seee you next year if not before. Merry Christmas, Joey
12/11/2008 5:57:30 PM - 000031826072
Hi there, Ann - Just stopping by to thank you for your comments on my book about Lt. Dan and my warm heart (at least some part of me is warm right now....it's colder here in Kansas then it is out your way today!)  Love all your fun new Christmas pictures - the gingerbread stuff is too cool.  I finally got up our Christmas tree and decorating done last weekend, but haven't even touched the shopping yet....better get on it, huh?  Enjoy the season! -Julie
12/7/2008 3:10:15 PM - 000064383827

Ann,

  Thank you for your comments on my Disney World photos.  I've never been to Disneyland as we live in Alabama and Florida is much closer than California.  About the photopass like you I'm not in many pictures although I take 1000s so photopass is great for me.  The first trip I didn't do it but have every trip since.  I pre-purchase it for 99.95 vs the 125.99 in the park.  You get a photopass card you use your entire stay and then we you get home you load the code into the webiste and you have 30 days to review, modify, add borders and character signatures.  Once you have modified all you want you place your order and put in your prepurchase code and that's it.  You have 30 days from when you upload them to either purchase or they disappear. If you decide not to purchase they you can get a refund within 2 weeks and the instructions is on your pre-paid email.  Here is the link:  http://www.disneyphotopass.com/previsitcdplan.aspx 

 

I love your christmas headers!  You have 3 beautiful children.  I hope you have a great holiday!

Cindy

12/5/2008 10:59:56 PM - 000064383827

Ann,

   I got your message about my Disney photo's.  I have loaded them on my Disney World tab on my sharesite.  I'm still loading the animal kingdom photo's but all our in seperate folders on the left hand side under Adult Disney November 2008.  I'm also still working on my Disney Photopass photo's adding all the borders, etc.  So it will be a few weeks before I can order and load them up as well.  I will start working on the book shortly.  I'm trying to learn digital scrapping so I have some pages I'm working on already.  It was a great trip and we are going back in 284 days but who's counting (Sep 09).  We actually took the plunge and joined the Disney Vacation Club so in 2010 we are going to stay at our home resort at Bay Lake Towers at the Contemporary.  If you have any questions just let me know.  I'm the over planner as my husband says.  I have an excel spreadsheet I use to keep track of all our dining and event reservations.  I'm always ready 180 days out to make all our reservations.  If you don't you won't be able to eat a sit down meal depending on the time of year.  When was it again that you are going?  I'll be happy to sharing it with you if you like to see if it could work for you too.  I know your excited.  We've only been back a week and I'm ready to head south again.  If anything for warming weather.  Have a great day!

12/2/2008 3:02:31 AM - 000074469281
I couldn't believe Minnie and the gift was an actual cake. Oh my gosh, your husband has talent! Trinity is a doll and so many fabulous photos. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I gobbled til I wobbled. I feel a bit behind in the Gallery with the long weekend so trying to ccatch up. See you around.
12/1/2008 7:27:46 PM - 000031826072
Hey Ann - love the Trinity birthday pics!  The cake is absoloutely amazing!!!!!!!!  Just awesome. Looks like the little Bday girl had a fab time.  Good deal.  Hope your Thanksgiving was warm and wonderful, too.  Now we move on to Christmas.......wow - I already feel way behind!!!!!!!  I am so excited to look at your new book - haven't yet - I'm thinking about jumping into digital myself in the new year so you are inspiring me big time!!!!!!! 
12/1/2008 2:39:57 PM - 000064383827
WOW!  Her cake is amazing!!  He should be on Ace of Cakes!  We just returned from Disney World and I'm a Disney nut anyways so it was great to see Minnie Mouse again!  I hope Trinity had a great birthday and that you also had a great Thanksgiving.  We had Dinner with Chip, Dale, Pluto and Mickey!  It was great.
11/30/2008 7:25:29 PM - 001066325224
Ann, I love all the pictures from Trinity's birthday.  Randy's Minnie Mouse cake is amazing and so is your first digital scrapbook.  Way to go, Mom and Dad!!!  ~ Diana
11/28/2008 7:54:22 PM - 001069856714
OMG that cake is spectacular!  Randy needs to have his own show on the food network!  LOL! 
11/28/2008 6:20:16 PM - 000033709100

Ann,

That Minnie Mouse cake looks fantastic, and Trinity sure looks cute with her minnie ears. Hope you had a great T'Giving. I ate like a lumberjack myself.

I've been checking photobooks for inspiration and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your books.

Lisa :)

TOO COOL!  How did you get your photo books so large on the screen???  I LOVE your page!!!!!  VERY NEAT!!
11/22/2008 1:29:54 AM - 000031826072

Hi Ann - stopping by to say hello.  I just realized that Trinity's birthday is on my 6 month wedding anniversary!!!  Woohoo!  Just think - you'll have that birthday all celebrated very soon so you can move on to Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Hope you have a good weekend and that Trinity has an awesome birthday!

What an amazing site, I am so impressed with how you have put so much together. Thank you for stopping by my site and leaving some wonderful comments.

HiSmiling, Just browsing through and "peeking" at all your great photos. It was funny, the first thing I thought when i got to your site was wow she still has Halloween pics up. Seems each year we tend to jump the gun quicker and quicker for Christmas. I had seen someone put up the Christmas background and then went ahead myself and did it, but it is nice to see that not everyone is in a rush:-). Have a great night

Hi Ann, Thanks for your comment on my postcard photobook, it took some time to build, more writing then my other photobooks. Yes indeed, you will have a nice collection of postcards in no time at all and I hope you do make a photobook, I'll definitely want to see and comment on it.

Have a wonderful day,

Snaps away,

Lisa :)

After reading you were a big fan of B&W's I was wondering which one YOU would like better!  and after seeing your B&W book I decided to do that fall B&W. Then I looked at all the Fall leaves and knew I had to do a color one too!  Thanks for checking them both out and taking a vote!  (I'll order one of each and let them fight over them when they get big) hahaha  Talk to you soon!! 
11/17/2008 8:00:48 PM - 001074633118
Thank you so much for commenting on my "brother & sister" book.  I had so much fun doing that book and I am having trouble not blowing my cover before Christmas! By the way, I LOVE your three to one book - the Outtakes make a "book" of themselves.
11/16/2008 1:13:44 AM - 000031826072
I had to laugh about your comment on falling out of your chair over my Christmas theme already........I was trying to just move on to Thanksgiving on the site, but I didn't have many Thanksgiving pictures to feature.  I know you still have Trinity's birthday to get through.....Jordan and Jarrett were summer babies, so all I have left for the rest of the year is holidays.  Hope you have a great weekend!
11/15/2008 9:29:15 PM - 000074469281

Hey Ann,

Just wanted to say thanks for the lovely comments on my 3 latest books. You always know the right thing to say to make me smile. Thank you - it's greatly appreciated.

11/15/2008 12:34:37 AM - 001038348079

Thanks for commenting on my fall photobook!  Funny how we think we have SOO many pics then when you go to do a book they seem to get fewer and fewer!!  Love your site!!  AND ALL YOUR PICS!  Have a wonderful night!  (Can't wait till the kids go to bed to get back on here and play!  #;-)

11/14/2008 3:49:30 PM - 001024320926

Hi Ann, Just checking in, hope all is well for you and yours :) I love all the borders you used for your pictures, too fun. Have great birthday fun with your little one :)

Snaps away,

Hi Ann - Just saw your comment on my site. Do you really think the Halloween pics I took are worthy of a book? I just don't think they are that great. Maybe I will whip up a 5x7 book...Now YOU should do a Halloween book. Look at all your fabulous photos in your header and the ones from the pumpkin patch. You have more of a variety! Keep up the fascinating work. joey :)
11/5/2008 6:58:29 PM - 000031826072
HI Ann - Just stopped by to say hello.  I love the new header pics - looks like you had an awesome Halloween.  Your site looks fabulous, as always.  Keep up the inspiring work!

Hi Ann, Love, love, love your header pictures, too, too fun. The kids are adorable, the borders on the pictures are great too. You do such a wonderful job, so inspiring for me :)

Wow Ann, fabulous Pumpkin Patch photos. I love them. I so wish I had gone with the kids to the pumpkin patch here - it always gets so hectic. Next year I'm going myself if I can't get any of the kids to go with me. For now I'll enjoy yours and everyone else's!
11/2/2008 6:50:02 PM - 001031312785

Ann, I have really enjoyed your site.  It has given me so many ideas and all of your activities look like so much fun.  We really enjoy October and it looks like you do too!
11/1/2008 7:29:00 PM - 000033709100

Ann,

I am loving the header pics! That schoolbus photo is so fun and creative. How was your Halloween? Can't wait to see costume pics. My husband and I sent our mail-in ballots, so we're all set. Whew! This is the most exciting election of my lifetime. Great to see the country so engaged, isn't it?

10/28/2008 5:43:28 PM - 001024320926

I love your Pumpkin pictures. They so fun and festive. I was just site hopping and wanted to say thanks again for your comments on my photobooks. Thanks so much.
Lisa:)

PS: I'll be checking out your articles.

10/25/2008 9:26:30 PM - 000074469281
Hi Ann, I am just trying to site hop. Hope all is well on your end. I so love your books you have created. I'm working on a couple for Christmas. I'm doing one for my grandma so i may use the same layouts but just simple white backgrounds and covers, with colored pictures - thinking it might be easier on her eyes. Thanks for your great ideas!! Have a good one. Love your apple pics. Joey
10/25/2008 12:55:14 AM - 000031826072
Congratulations on being featured on the Shutterfly blog for your incredible share site, Ann!  Your site is very inspiring and the Apple pix are wonderful.  You, Kelli and Lisa have such great apple orchards and pumpkin patches in your areas - just awesome. Your site looks great!  Have a good weekend!  - Julie
10/22/2008 2:55:48 PM - 001077603962

Gosh I am glad that we are not the only ones who love apples!  Apple juice was the first food Pasha would eat for us (he was living on sweet tea and sugar water in the orphanage so we had to introduce formula gently).  Can't get enough apples.  YOU got some truly awesome shots.  I was just trying to keep Pasha from breaking things in the store, and you grabbed some wonderful photographs.  I love the shot of the baskets.  As always you are so inspirational!  Homeworks shots are too cute : )  I just love the one with his leg hiked on the table...adorable.
10/21/2008 1:49:27 AM - 001024320926

Love, love, love the header pictures!! They're great. Apples are another one of my favorites. Your kiddos are adorable and you take wonderful pictures of them. Love your site and your books.

Lisa :)

10/20/2008 11:42:33 PM - 000074469281

Hey Ann,

Thanks for the nice comment on my site. I LOVE the apple pictures. How great are they. I would love to be around an apple orchard. What a great photo shoot and your pictures are looking awesome with your new camera! Trinity is growing just like my niece and into everything. She's a handful but oh so fun! She likes to tell me 'stop it JoJo' and I didn't even do anything!
Keep up the great work. I MOLT of your Three To One book, I'm working on one for a Chistmas gift.

Thanks for always inspiring.

Joey

10/19/2008 3:13:57 PM - 001022895113
Hi Ann, just taking a minute to poke around a bit. I love the photos from Gunther's, what a fun family tradition! You're Three To One album is simplicity at it's best! I think it's wonderful the way you've let you daughter have her own page on your site, what a perfect idea! Thanks for sharing your share site with me. Have a super day, Jenna. 
10/17/2008 12:39:01 PM - 001024320926
Hi Ann, I was checking out some of your pictures. I really love the black and white sets. Think I might give that a try for myself. Thanks for the inspiration. Lisa :)
10/13/2008 3:48:01 AM - 000031826072
Hi Ann! I'm stopping by to let you know that, like Kelli, I "borrowed" your fabulous "Three To One" design and used it to create a book about my son.  Thanks so much for inspiring me!  You rock!
10/10/2008 10:52:59 PM - 001076975951
I just read your kind words on my shared webpage.  Thanks, I do appreciate it.  Yes


I like your site.  Great photos and lots of information.  Thanks for visiting my page and I'll be visiting your site every now and then. 
10/9/2008 5:44:30 PM - 000033709100

Hi Ann,

Just stopping by to say hi and to thank you for being such a wonderful Gallery Guru. You always send me great photo book suggestions and are very active on Gallery and the blog. Such a huge help.

10/8/2008 11:53:53 PM - 000031826072
Hi Ann!  Thanks for stopping by my site and saying hello and for the congrats and the comments on my sister's book.  Sometimes I wished I was an only child, but usually I was glad to have a sister!  I'm so glad I found your site.  It's wonderful.  I love the family calendar idea - I might have to borrow that great idea!  The ice cream pictures are mouth watering and your daughter looks like I feel when I eat ice cream!  I really like the way you have the whole site organized. Don't be a stranger - stop by and say Hi again soon!
